Worldwide SketchCrawl - Sketching my commute

I love the view from the new bike/pedestrian path on the Morrison Bridge, especially since I get to enjoy it every day while walking to work. All those days, I have to keep going instead of stopping to draw, so it was a relief to finally get this chance to stop and record the view.

The Waterfront, of course, is full of great views for sketching - this is the view looking down from the bridge.

After our first meet-up, I sketched the meet-up location - Morningstar Cafe at SW 3rd & Washington - from the parking lot across the street. There are so many lovely buildings in downtown Portland, and I only managed to get started on the bottom of these ones!

  2. Kalina, your sketches are wonderful! You nailed the perspective on the view of the waterfront from the bridge--it almost makes me dizzy to look at it!

  3. Bill - I enjoyed meeting you too, and loved seeing your work. Also, we should totally do a sketchcrawl up at OHSU sometime as you suggested on the google map :-)

    Janene - thanks!

  4. Beautiful! I do not sketch, I click the streets. Yet there's a certain kinship that I feel with your eye! :)
