Being part of the Portland Urban Sketchers group has really helped me loosen up my drawing. Although I've often brought my watercolor set and a sketchbook while hiking, this week's trip to Jefferson Park Wilderness was the first time I've really used them, and the first time I've attempted anything more than a small sketch of a single flower.
I of course still did sketch wildflowers (how could I resist?).
But the big difference is that I also tried to capture my favorite mountain.
Here's how it turned out.
