Next Sketch Outing
Friday, June 16: Danny Woo Community Garden
Coffee, Electric Cloud and Lenin's Boot
drivers would feel a bit frustrated when the bridge alarm goes off just
as you approach the Fremont drawbridge. It means about a 5-7 minute
delay in getting where you were going. For me, though, it meant an
opportunity to sketch the little drive through coffee stand from the comfort of the
passenger seat in the car. No distracting traffic in the opposite lane! I
did the sketch in the time the bridge was open and finished the color
Electric Cloud Coffee

is a drive through stand located on the south end of the Fremont
drawbridge. They are known for their breakfast burritos and hemp lattes.

I arrived late for our outing in Fremont this morning. We had an alternate location in case of rain, but the sun was breaking through the clouds by the time I got there. No time to sketch the whole statue of Lenin, so I settled for a quick 20 minute sketch of the boot. Wish I could have done a sketch of the workers resting in the square as the sun finally came out.

It was a true Seattle cultural day for me, with morning and
afternoon coffee breaks, sketching in Fremont and lunch with the
sketchers out on the sidewalk tables at PCC nearby.
Why was I late? My husband wanted me to try out a cool coffee shop in the Beacon Hill neighborhood. We
went there first, then over to Fremont so that I could sketch with
Seattle USK. After lunch at PCC we explored the shops in the Columbia City neighborhood, where they have some kind of dark chocolate whiskey cake at the bakery. I'm calling it a scouting trip for upcoming sketch locations.
Yow -- those treats were worth being late! Nice Lenin foot!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Tina. Is it a coincidence that the difference between "late" and "latte" is only one letter? Anyway, I enjoyed the challenge of trying to depict the patina on that boot.Delete
