Grab Bag

This post is made up of some sketches from the last month or so.

Our son got married recently. I sketched my very comfortable wedding shoes and a bag full of last minute supplies to take to the wedding: bandaids, safety pins, needle and thread, medicine, handywipes, extra pantyhose, and even more, including duct tape. Luckily, very few of the things were needed.

The Urban Sketchers Portland group had a sketchcrawl at Powell's recently. I sketched the sketchbook display on the top floor, ...

along with a few sketchers.

In the semi-darkness of Jimmy Mak's, I sketched some of the listeners...
and some of the Mel Brown Septet...

On a chilly day, sitting in the car, I sketched The Bakery Bar and colored it with markers.

And finally, today, I sketched a view from a window...

The Urban Sketchers Portland group is having a scavenger hunt challenge again and one of the items to draw is a donut. These are from Staccato Gelato. I feel like I'm packing on calories just looking at them!

Happy New Year!

I'm not a great one for making New Year's Resolutions, but I am going to try to draw more often, and this is the first sketch of the year. I can't resolve to go to Barcelona this year, but I can hope  to go and try to go and in the meantime, I can work on both sketching and speaking Spanish.
