This is the second of the street sketches I did on my recent visit to Leesburg. Many of the businesses in the old town are built into old residences, which gives the place a homelike feeling. "Puccio's New York Deli" is one of these, and this is the porch of that house, complete with wrought iron seating bench in front and hanging ferns. By the time I drew this, Puccio's had closed for the day so I didn't get to eat there, but maybe I will next time I visit the town. I drew this porch detail out the window of my parked car as a major thunderstorm was approaching the area. I drew fast and left just before the deluge.
