Sketchcrawl SEP & AUG 2012

We were heading to Half Moon Bay for september south bay sketchcrawl. Thanks for Pierre's van ride so we could chat a little bit on the way to there. It was a perfect, not-too-windy day with lots of sunshine upon our shoulders. There was some boats selling fresh fish, crabs. Not too busy until we left around 3 pm, the in coming traffic was just bad for about 10 miles.....

First sketch: Half Moon Bay, Kayak co. "Getting ready"

Vista House, Crown Point, OR

This Vista House at Crown Point Oregon is the main entrance if you are going to Multnomah Fall. You can get a very nice view of Columbia River from the top of the building. 

Fun Facts: Edgar M. Lazarus was the lead architect at the time. Vista House is an example of German “Art Nouveau” architecture.

Crater lake, Eugene, Portland

This labor day was quite pleasant that I can join my friend, Carrie and her bf, road trip to Oregon. Here are some highlights of the trip:

Inside the car: Tim was the only driver of the whole trip. We 2 girls were either chi chatting or sleeping. Ha. Thanks Tim. 

Phantom ship is actually really small compare with the Lava island (Wizard island). Carter lake is super blue. I only have like 5 mins to complete this sketch. Not bad I think. :P

It's kindda hard to spend time on sketching if you travel with friends aren't into drawing. I use thumbnail concepts to captures some interesting scenes or places that we went to record this wonderful memory instead.

We also went to Multnomah Falls (35 mins away from Portland) on Sunday. it's sooo pretty. The 2 tier falls could be as nice as Yosemite Fall I would say. especially the bridge in between. Pretty sure it has been seen in plenty of movies. My hardcore-disney-fan friend just pointed out the new Cars theme at California Adventure has this bridge and waterfall in it. Maybe SolCal gangs can double check that if my friend is correct. :)
