The local urban sketchers group went to the 25th anniversary apple tasting celebration at Portland Nursery to do some sketching. There was a lot going on. I found that after doing so many long-term drawings this week, it was difficult to get into quick sketching. I started by doing a warm-up sketch of a cow sign, used by some families as a prop for an autumn photo. Feeding the kids popcorn helped them cooperate with the photo shoots.
This is another sketcher who was sketching people selecting apples to buy.
Crowds lined up to go into the tent to taste a variety of apples.
I liked the roof top garden...
The band, Petty Cash played for kids and adults. I appreciated the chance to sit on a hay bale to sketch.

There was much more to sketch, but the rain clouds moved in and released a downpour, so it was time to go.
