Inspired by the drunk old man in Ernest Hemingway's short story I did my best to keep the palette monochromatic with a strong emphasis on the clean, welcoming light of the street. With his Brandy snifter topped up and the collected saucers he drinks without spilling and walks away with dignity. 

"I am of those who like to stay late at the cafe," the older waiter said. 
"With all those who do not want to go to bed. With all those who need a light for the night." 
- Ernest Hemingway
