|1/16/19 Green Lake Starbucks|
If I arrive at my neighborhood Starbucks by 6:30 a.m., I’ll see a large group of runners who have just finished their laps around Green Lake and regularly congregate afterwards for coffee. High on endorphins, they are all fit, energetic, happily chatting and laughing. Ready to face their day, they move on quickly – no lingering after 7 a.m. – so they disappeared long before I finished my sketch. Fortunately, I had blocked in the whole composition quickly so that I could finish without them. (I’m getting into my secondary triad palette!)
It’s nice to see their vibrant socializing when most of the other patrons look more like the guy at left, staring at his phone and waiting for the caffeine to kick in.
