Young Lee
Sunday Afternoon


Un-commissioned | Professional

Why did you make this work:
This painting is inspired by a scene I saw at a small coffee shop near my house where I used to go very often. Based on what I have seen and felt at the coffee shop, I made this work on a Sunday afternoon to relieve stress after a long week, and thus, this work was named "Sunday Afternoon".

How was the illustration used:
This illustration was created for self-promotion and was added to my illustration portfolio.

How did you make this work:
I used gouache paint and a piece of mixed media paper. This work was painted from back to front, and the cute sleeping dog was added at the last moment.
