A couple of weeks ago, it was a beautiful day by the Willamette River. At a picnic table with some other sketchers, breeze in the air, coffee at hand, I drew the Hawthorne Bridge.
Almost exactly a year ago, on another beautiful day, I drew from the same spot. Looks a little grayer, though.
We went down to the docks to draw the dragon boats, but drawing more than one made for a busy composition. I tried to lighten the boats in back and emphasize the lines on the front boat, but it's still pretty cluttered.
