Multnomah Village sketchcrawl

Multnomah Village is an enclave of small shops and cafes.

Viewed as a visitor it has all of the components of a destination trip...
including the traffic and cars parked along the streets. It seemed a little busy for me so I went looking for a place where I could see the shops without cars parked in front. Later on I got interested in all of the traffic signs at this busy intersection.


  1. Deb, I am loving your line drawings, especially those with the splashy watercolor backgrounds. Your color palette fits Portland so well too! Excellent work!!

  2. Thanks Janene. I am mostly satisfied with them too....but am thinking that with warmer weather (wouldn't that be nice!) I may go back to doing the color on site or maybe a combination of both techniques. Something to play with!

  3. great drawings De. Had a great time yesterday too. I bet you loved the fast dry time for paint yesterday!
