A Return to Urban Sketching

A Return to Urban Sketching

The weather in Portland is warming up, the people are in the streets, and I’m there, sketchbook in hand observing the goings on around town. Well, the goings on inside coffee shops, bars, and on nice sunny hot dog eatery patios anyway. It’s great to get out and although I haven’t had a chance to join up recently with my Urban Sketching brethren, I’ve gone on solo missions to sketch the people and places of our colorful city. This past week’s adventures have taken me to Zach’s Shack which I believe are the tastiest hot dogs in town; for some sweet treats and caffeine at Dragonfly Coffee House, one of Portland’s coziest coffee shops; and for some libations at Muu Muu’s, one of the chillest bars in the Northwest area of town. Hopefully as the summer goes on, I can get out and continue my little solo Urban Sketching adventures, and if anyone ever wants to join me for a mid-week romp around town, shoot me a line, perhaps we can romp together.
Once again the links to some of my sketch spots:

Comfortable seating, great coffee, and delicious sweet treats!

Sadly, my martini received most of my attention at my latest visit to Muu Muu's and less so, my sketchbook.
