Roastery Redux Plus Melrose Market

inks, Caran d'Ache Museum water-soluble colored pencil,
Canson XL 140 lb. paper
After biting off way more of a composition than I could chew the last time I sketched at the Starbucks Reserve Roastery, today I took a smaller view. This time I think I managed to both chew and swallow – though barely.

In any case, it was an especially fun gathering of Urban Sketchers Seattle this morning with a huge turnout – at least 40 were counted! Sketchers were scattered all over the Roastery as well as on surrounding sidewalks. I didn’t have quite the fortitude to sketch outdoors like some brave souls, but I admire those who did.

After my sketch at the Roastery, I walked down the street to Melrose Market, a small collection of caf├ęs and retail shops housed in a cool old building. It, too, was filled with sketchers! I climbed the stairs to the upper level, and when I looked down over a railing, I got a bird’s-eye view of Bob sketching.

  1. Love these, Tina. Your figures are turning out great! Nice to sketch with you and the other 38 today. :)

  2. Love the bird's eye view!!! How great that you had so many people come out to sketch.
