Sketching at the Riverfront Downtown

After our art discussion meeting today we went to the area near McCall's Waterfront Restaurant. It was a beautiful "Indian summer" day. I used vine charcoal to sketch the Morrison Bridge. To see what the others did go HERE.

Simple. Just right. What a great day to be on the river!

Great bold strokes Celeste! Charcoal is such a great medium. And love the flowers in the vase from your last post - beautiful!

Celeste... I am SO behind in my blogging. Wow, you are so prolific that I just spent the last 20 minutes trying to get caught up just on you... I like today's study of the bridge, yesterday's wonderful flowers, your powerful tribute to John Lennon on his birthday, the Celeste Bergin profile/logo, and that cool photo of you with your cats. You ROCK!

This makes me want to sketch our bridge here in Clarksville VA. It topped ESPN's recent list of Redneck Wonders. (At night it has green lights to attract bait fish.) From my street, it's beautiful during daylight.

Hi Celeste, I like the composition of your drawing; nice lines and curves. Portland is such a wonderful town. I enjoyed scrolling through your recent posts; wonderful paintings!
