So, as planned, in the same book with my Iceland and my Vancouver sketches went most of my recent Portland sketches. Atmospheric? Gray and wet...I call that atmosphere!
Had a fabulous time with my Portland Urban Sketcher friends. We went to see and draw the Samurai exhibit at the Portland Art Museum. Though it was indoors, it was plenty atmospheric. So much beautiful detail and drama to see in these artifacts of war and aggression.
I have other museum sketches to share, but for today I'll just add these non-museum ones, one at the airport, and another from the front porch of my bed and breakfast, the Lion and Rose. I'm glad I got some sketching practice in before my Norway adventure... I was a bit wonky in these two.
Live and learn. And learn and learn again. More to come!
