I met with Ellie, Ali, and Lauren from Corvallis to tackle the crowds and activities down at the waterfront today.
It was a little overwhelming but also colorful and exciting...... so many choices to sketch. However I chose to pick my sketch views based on the criteria of wanting to be in the shade.
|This shady alley of fun games came with the cries of the Carneys and an occasional pop of a balloon or clang against at metal backdrop when the target was missed. Saw a few people take home some prizes though.|
When we gathered to share our sketches Lauren commented that I had not put any people in the above sketch.....oh, how easy it is to out me!
So, after a hearty Mexican lunch I attacked another carnival view with a few 'sketchy' people!
|Another view of the carnival activity.....with people. Hardly representative of the crowds however.|
A nice day to sketch with some of our regular sketchers and to meet Lauren.
