Yellow Line Sketching

On Saturday morning I wasn't feeling great and had a lot to get done, but couldn't resist joining the sketchcrawl anyway.

I drew feet as we rode on the train, and then we arrived at Union Station where obviously I was having trouble focusing on any one thing...

We got a good view of the grain elevator structures from Rose Quarter station. Along with the Kuretake Brush Writer in light gray, I used Noodler's Whaleman's Sepia ink which is more of a warm gray than an actual sepia. This ink came to me by way of Goulet Pen's "Ink Drop" monthly ink sample club, which I have to recommend - it's a great service.

Albina/Mississippi Station is surrounded with great views. I tried to catch the Fremont Bridge. This is with Noodler's Whaleman's Sepia and the Brush Writer again.

Overlook Park Station actually didn't offer an "overlook" from the station itself, so I sketched Tony sketching. This is lovely Diamine Red Dragon ink (another Goulet Pens Ink Drop sample) in a Lamy Safari... but I topped up the cartridge with some J. Herbin Ambre de Birmanie which is probably starting to affect the color by adding a slight orange tone.

Then I skipped ahead to Kenton. This was sketched through a window from Kenton Station, where I had a sandwich for lunch and our server was charismatic.
