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:
