Diner Still Life

My sketchbooks have quite a few drawings like this, which I call the “Diner Still Life.” It usually consists of the chrome napkin holder, sugar dispenser, ketchup bottle, and salt-and-pepper shakers.

If the service is a little slow, I might have about twenty minutes to work on all the wonderful reflections and transparencies. You could try all you want to arrange a nice still life at home in the studio, but you can never beat the chance arrangements that you find in real life.
