Coffeehouse Chairs

Peet's Coffee isn't so bad. I don't like it as much as Starbucks, for flavor and cost reasons. I often draw in coffeehouses and unlike some other urban sketchers, I don't always concentrate on drawing people. I like the interplay of inside architecture and design, and the world outside. Coffeehouses often use wood for their interior textures, which I like. The wood (rather than plastic or stone) gives it a warm, soft feeling, like sipping a cappuccino. The chairs here, though, are made of solid metal, because of the practical needs of being used by hundreds of people every day. I may color this drawing in so you might see it again.

I have finished the "Angelic Portrait" but I am not presenting it here just yet since someone might pass its image along to the Portraitee, thus spoiling the anticipation. You will see it here next week.
