A fairly random painting, even by my standards.  We had some sad news in early January when a family friend passed away.  I think my strongest memory of her was from when I visited Indonesia five years ago and she took us for amazing satay.  Not just satay, either, but also tofu.  Those who know me well will know exactly how I feel about tofu…but this one was different.  Turns out it’s a regional speciality and I’m unlikely to find it anywhere else. Typical.  It’s tahu sumedang, and the restaurant can be found at Jalan Penjernihan 1 No. 5B, Pejompongan, RT.7/RW.6, Bend. Hilir, Kota Jakarta Pusat, Daerah Khusus Ibukota Jakarta 10210, Indonesia.

A very banal sketch, but it marks a wonderful evening.  I’d arranged to meet my friend Kamna for dinner, and then invited Jen as I bumped into her the day before… and then Jen was running late, so I thought I’d drop Mark a quick text to see if he was around.  The result?  A lovely impromptu reunion (usually the four of us, five if you include Laura, only get together like this once a year around Christmas).  Good food, and even better company.  The restaurant was The Little Bay in Kilburn – highly recommended.

A little bit of me-time. My local garden centre sent me a voucher for a cup of coffee and a mince pie. So I popped in and enjoyed my free snack while sketching.

Sadly I was having a ditzy morning, as I’d remembered to pack my sketchbook and watercolours… but sadly not my pencil case (which has my pen, waterpen and good pencils in). All I had in my handbag were a couple of biros and a very blunt HB pencil. I like this sketch, but really wish I’d had a proper pen with me! I’d have loved to add some colour to it too, as the restaurant in the garden centre was quite colourful. Never mind, there’s always next time!
