January SketchCrawl - Downtown & Portlandia

On January 21, we had our first regular sketchcrawl of the year. It was cold and intermittently rainy, so our surprisingly large group sheltered in a cafe at SW 2nd & Taylor, a place I walk past every day on my way to work ... SW 2nd & Taylor, street view

then under the ramparts of the World Trade Center, where my company holds its quarterly meetings...

and in more cafes, this time with a view of Portlandia.

Lately I've felt absorbed by work and health improvement projects, so it is a particularly good time to go out with the sketchers, enjoy the good company, and get back to thinking visually!
