Kelley Point Park
Today was a lovely warm day. It was a bit hazy but not as dingy as this sketch looks. It was quiet at the park and relaxing to sit and draw for a couple of hours.
I had never been to Kelley Point Park before today and always imagined it to be a sort of unsavory kind of place but, even though it's right next to the Port of Portland, and I mean RIGHT next to it, it was really a nice park. Situated at the confluence of the Wilamette and Columbia rivers, it has a good view of some industrial sites and a lot of shipping traffic but also a nice bike path and wooded picnic sites.
