Plein Air: 10/14/2014 - Looking West on a Rainy Day

I messed up on this one unintentionally breaking the cardinal rule of composition by placing the sign right in the middle of the drawing.  That's where it was where I was sitting on the side of the river.  I didn't realize how much it commands attention until I went to add color to my drawing.  I find I actually like it so it turned in to a happy accident.  
The weather is turning in to typical Oregon fall rain so the days of painting by the river may be coming to an end soon.
