|11/16/19 Starbucks Reserve Roastery, Capitol Hill neighborhood|
Arriving 15 minutes early to our brunch reservation left me just enough time for a very quick attempt at the Starbucks Reserve Roastery across the street. I’ve sketched it at least a couple of times before (both in 2016), so I chose a different angle.
Knowing I had so little time, I tossed measuring of angles and perspective to the wind and decided to approach the building the way I do short poses at life drawing: as a gesture. How does this 1920s building hold itself against a skyline of mostly glassy blue boxes (with more coming up behind it)? Where is its life and character? I hope they come through, even with wonky perspective.
