Memphis Urban Sketchers @ Flying Saucer

This month we went to the Flying Saucer downtown. We sat on the covered patio facing Beale Street. It was a hot day but at least we had a breeze by the windows. I sketched the Blues City Cafe + the corner of Peabody Place + 2nd Street. I was inspired by a sketch I saw recently (which I can't find now) to keep most of the image in pencil (or pen) + only have one part in colorful watercolor. I really like the effect:

Then I decided to sketch the interior. I drew a beer keg planter hanging from the ceiling + the plates on the wall:

After that I met my mom for lunch + continued sketching:
