20 Minute Color Sketch

The Canvas Art Bar and Bistro located in NW Portland hosts a live model sketching session every Monday night. If you are interested look for them on Face Book for events like Over Head Pictionary and monthly Etsy user Meet-up. We showed up for happy hour and sketched till the model left; wish there was more time; wish they could have First Monday as leotard night. All in all it was an enjoyable experience for me and friends.  Look for more of our sketches on the Behind The Scenes Blog.

Another 20 minute pencil sketch



  1. I love your work from the evening---it was great fun. Let's plan to go again!

  2. I love your work, I especially love the colour one, love the subtle colours you have used. Many thanks for your kind comments on my blog.

  3. Absolutely masterful watercolor work in the top piece, Carrie. The pencil portrait is just amazing. I so wish I could do what you all do! I love the idea of the place in Portland. How cool is that? I hope that many artists come out and support the place so it can keep its doors open for years to come!

  4. Great


  5. Nice work, Carrie! The color sketch has a lot of attitude and fun. The graphite sketch is masterful. Terrific! I hope to join you there when I'm back in town! K.

  6. Neat stuff, Carrie! Inspiring. thanks for stopping by my blog ... Am still a neophyte in the whole process, so your support is truly meaningful.

    Am working hard to sell my house, so I can move to PDX. Will keep in touch so you can guide me to and through the Portland artist communities.

    Keep on doing what you're doing!



Thank you for your comments!
