>I met my Portland Sketchcrawl group in the Laurelhurst neighborhood. We were lucky to have a gorgeously dry day complete with sunshine! I had spotted this church one night and just knew I had to try sketching it!
It was definitely difficult, and I made quite a few attempts!
I also attempted the Laurelhurst theater but wasn’t crazy about the results…
despite the sunshine it was chilly outside so I escaped into the warmth of Whole Foods, and sketched Kalina who was sketching various bottles of hot sauces and olive oil.
in the back of my journal, I tried sketching the kitty boys using a brush pen.
and did this doodle while watching movies.
also in my journal…warming up before the sketchcrawl…
