Scavenger Hunt: Item No. 20, Mount Hood

I had been out sketching hippos at the Oregon Zoo this weekend. While hiking back down the hill towards town, I paused at the rose garden terrace to watch a hint of the sunset colors appearing on Mount Hood. Lovely.

  1. This is one of the great drawable views of Hood. You did a great job with it. Simple and nice to look at.

    1. Thank you! I realized as I kept walking that there's another good view on the other side of the rose garden overlook, in the big cluster of picnic tables--which omits a lot of the buildings. (At first I was really not sure what to do with the buildings, but I like how they ended up working into this sketch after all.)

  2. I like the splashes of color on the mountain and how you tucked a couple of buildings in, too. It is lovely. Thanks for the tip on where to get a good view of the mountain.
