Milwaukie Sketchcrawl

A wonderful sketching session with lots of new and regular sketchers. Seemed like the weather cooperated and I spent my time outside sketching. Started with a couple of thumbnails to get warmed up. I know this is supposed to help but most times the thumbnails don't seem to have much to do with the resulting sketch.....but then maybe I am missing something.

First on the agenda was to visit the corner store that still has it's soda fountain intact (we had to ask a local to direct us to it). Although it is no longer a drugstore but a Collector's Mall it was still fun to see the old fashioned soda counter and stools done up in Turquoise....A treat!

  1. I always like seeing your use of color splashes here and there in your sketches--really neat choices on what you leave in linework and what you paint. The red and blue ink are also makes for built-in accent colors!
