Portland Skies

It seems like the sky is putting on quite a show lately. We've had big puffy, cumulonimbus clouds one moment and dark, ominous thunderclouds the next. With these sketches, I was initially drawn to the architecture but the clouds kept catching my eye.

The first one, of Big Pink and the Portland Spirit, I drew beside Andrea on the rock, adding most of the color later.

The next was on Directors Square, looking toward Elephant's Deli--and the sky.


  1. There's a wonderful quality to the Directors Square sketch, the feeling of light bouncing off big shiny buildings, that I just adore. Well done!

  2. Vicky - those clouds are really nice. I love the merry-go-round too. And the fountain, and the pigeons.
