Girl at Starbucks

"Art is beauty, the perpetual invention of detail, the choice of words,
the exquisite care of execution." ~ Theophile Gautier
I pulled this one together after doing a quick sketch at a local Starbucks.

The recent rain effected cable service making my home wireless spotty at best. So taking the opportunity, I did this sketch.

I do like some things about this painting. I was trying to show the face being lit by her computer screen while her whole form is back lit from the window behind her. I debate whether or not this worked.

I really like how I made the cup and specifically the reflection or refraction of her arm through the plastic cup.
