Antonio, otherwise known as Pastor, runs the restaurant/cafe/bar in the main plaza in Jimena, called Pastor II. His other bar is just around the corner. It is a popular gathering place for coffee and gossip in the late morning, and, although the service is not fast, the coffee is very good. I think he has an interesting face, and is part of Jimena, so I wanted to draw him, especially as I am practicing drawing people at the moment. Of course, non-Jimenatas will have no idea if this looks anything like him or not! I took some pictures to work from and he was very flattered, in fact I think he thought he’d pulled as he then sat with his arm draped round me…. 🙂
The bar around the corner
Jimena has lots of good bars and restaurants and Hostal El Anon is in the next street to ours, Calle Consuelo; it is about a half minute walk there and stagger back 😉 It has a beautiful terrace on top which really comes into it own in the summer months. The window has some beautiful flowers coming into bloom at the moment – I really must get into using colours…..
