Portland farmer’s marketPosted: August 4, 2012
I want to move to Portland, Oregon so I can go to the farmer’s market on Saturdays. If I didn’t have to cross the Canada/US border I could easily fill up my suitcase with the local bounty. But it wasn’t easy to paint this scene with the constant stream of shoppers and the big university building in the background. Students in the workshop did some amazing paintings of this complex scene but there was a visible sigh of relief in the afternoon when they drew the Simon Benson House. No people, no motion, just lots of Victorian detailing.
