More sketching opportunities in the summer months. One favorite location is the Saturday Market. I live in Oregon so normally sun is not a problem. However I have soon discovered that the placement of the sun is something to consider when sketching outdoors. You really don’t want to be sketching with the sun in your eyes. Unfortunately it was when I first started sketching at the Saturday Market. I was watching a band play and they had placed the band so the sun was to the back of them.
