Summer in the City

A couple of weeks ago, on a beautiful day, I was at the south waterfront and sketched the Hawthorne Bridge.

Then I tried to draw three dragon boats (color added at home) but the composition got pretty busy.


This is my entry for 'unusual hair', although it's really more 'unusual hair ornamentation', since her multicolored hair was twined up with yarn creations.


Hunt Total: 17--I crossed the midpoint!

  1. These are great, Vicky! Those dragon boats are particularly beautifully done. Great handling of the colors and depth!

    1. Thanks, Kalina. I tried to lighten the boats in back and emphasize the line and color on the foreground boat, but I wasn't sure it worked. Glad to hear you think it did:)

  2. Dragon boats are really iconic of Portland in my mind, nice to see them featured in your drawing. All three sketches are delightful!

      Hey, you must be getting near the end of the list, aren't you?
