Today, I sketched with friends Carrie and Eunice in my little neighborhood haunt, Multnomah Village. We went to a couple of galleries where artists we know were showing and then decided to do some sketches. We set up at the Lucky Labrador Pizza and Pub, which is a nice spot with outside tables and umbrellas. I wanted to sketch a dog but, even though the restaurant is "dog-friendly," we didn't see a single dog. There wasn't even one walking by. The sketch above needs a dog. The guy was pretty good, and I love the umbrellas...but wanted a dog in the foreground. Oh, well, we also sketched dumpsters. Here's my version:
And I also sketched Carrie's beer. Beer is something I needed to do for the Urban Sketcher's Scavenger Hunt. She may have gotten it so that I could do the sketch. She is that kind of friend. Her sketch kit and book are in the background. The ashtray is unfortunate. We unwittingly sat at the smoking table.
