It was great to go out again with the Urban Sketchers, especially to the new Starbucks Roastery which I hadn't yet had the chance to visit. It was very busy, but I was lucky enough to snag a seat with a great view of the main bar, in the center of which were these copper-and-glass apparatus containing various coffee beans, which were connected via these gracefully twisting copper tubes to the giant hammered (what else, copper) tank that is the roaster (in the background, with the star-over-R logo).
After a while, I took a step outside to get some fresh air and came across this house, whose siting was so peculiar that I had to draw it. I tried a different technique in pen.
