SketchCrawl - Pearl District

I've started posting Symposium wrap-up at my own blog. Those posts as well as a copy of this one are at http://www.geminica.com.

The Portland Urban Sketchers have been more interested in Portland's Northwest neighborhoods since the Symposium, so we met up this morning at Pearl Baking, NW 9th & Couch.  We stopped in the North Park Blocks to draw the elephant...

North Park Blocks - Elephant
I wish I hadn't drawn the frame, or had drawn it to the left - the elephant would be better on the right side of the frame.


Then we went for more coffee at Floyd's - there continues to be a lot to discuss as we all absorb our experiences at the Symposium and go through resulting changes in our practices! - and afterwards stopped at Hoodoo Antiques to draw this scene...


These were drawn in the sketchbooks donated to symposium participants by Legion Paper; a new product to be released this month, Stonehenge Wired.  The 90 lb paper is nice and sturdy, takes Lamy Safari fountain pen without feathering, and holds up well to watercolors - I'm liking it.
