Here's what I got done at our Eastbank Esplanade sketchcrawl on April 10. I tried out two very different approaches to drawing the Portland cityscape - but felt like I'd do well to come back to this area at least a few more times, there are so many great views to be had! It was a shame to sketch only the view across the river, and not the Esplanade itself, activity on the river, OMSI, the dock and Firehouse, and so on. I highly recommend this sketching location.

I met with fellow sketchers where SE Madison meets the river. The Eastbank Esplanade is such a great place to sketch from! There are great views of Portland's well loved bridges.
I need lots of practice with urban scenes, so this was a great place for me to draw buildings and such...
