Barista @ The Leela

The Leela palace is a 5 star business hotel close to my place and the coffee shop there is a Barista Lavazza. Its a cosy little place and great for sketching. A few days back I went there for sketching and it was afternoon time. The place was calm as usual, but still there was a soft buzz of people passing by. Mostly business people in their impeccable business suits. After doing some sketches there I came back home and painted this. Hope you enjoy this.

I know I already told you on your facebook page, but I have to say it again. I LOVE this one! You are so freaking good at evoking a mood. I love it. Two cupcakes for you for this one. :) With chocolate sprinkles. :D

Hi Prabal. You really have created a beautiful sense of quiet space and grandeur in this painting. There is a wonderful sense of perspective in the muted colors and diminishing shadows. I love what you have painted here. :)

Love it, Prabal!
You've managed to capture the cloistered feel of a grand building, with the daylight streaming through; yet also captured the life and soul of a cafe. Marvellous work.

You have always been so appreciative. It always encourages me. Thank you so much.

I really wish I could really get hold of those cup cakes from you. They sound sooooooooooooo yummy. :) You too always have been great. Encouraging me lifting me all the time. Thank you so much.

Thank so much. I am sending you bear hugs from here. :)

Tall pillars with some embellishment on them and light passing through the gaps and some people thrown in is like a painting already done. One just has to put it on paper. Thank so much for your kind words.

Your words humble me. You say more than what I have painted. Thank you for your words of appreciation.
