Paella

An interpretation from the aftermath.

I didn’t eat paella today, but did enjoy datiles rellenos as always. Anything with dates and bacon has to be good. Paired with a bourbon cocktail and a Spanish bread pudding, I started my sketch.

Asking the server to leave the plates, I sketched under a hot/bright light, only to really see my work later. Painting is another story. The Koi watercolors are different from any I have used in the past. They feel muted, and am trying to find my “sweet spot”.

Here is the link (http://www.artesano-restaurant.com) to the restaurant. It is truly one of Louisville’s more pleasurable places to eat.
