Ernie was sketching. Balanced
on his little green folding stool,
with paper pad on his knees and
yellow pencil in hand, he was
looking shoreward from a boat
wharf at Taft. The scene before
him was a close-packed group of
wooden buildings, weather
beaten to a neutral gray, behind
the barrier reef of storm-tossed
Already the shoreward scene
was becoming recognizable in
the quick, sure pencil-strokes on
the sketch pad. Ernie was in
high spirits. We both were. The
sun was shining clear. The sky
was turquois and the sea cobalt.
The morning wind off shore was
cool, but not uncomfortable.
"This is wonderful," Ernie
said. "It's grand. It's perfect.
What a day!"
Soggy, floating logs, swirling
in violent eddies as the tide
started to ebb, charged the pier,
thumping the piling and shaking
the whole structure. Tall blue
breakers topped by dazzling
white were marching in straight
rows through the bay entrance.
A beachcomber in red wool shirt
and faded blue overalls was
selecting boards from the drift
heap. The artist's attention was
all on the drab shoreward scene.
Water Hard to Sketch
"Look, Ernie," I said gently.
"Wouldn't you like to sketch
what's practically under us here
those floating beat-up logs,
the surging water something
suggesting the indomitable
force of ocean currents?"
"Water," Ernie said, "is a very
difficult subject for pen-and-ink.
It's prettjk likely to look like
straw. Besides, it changes form.
You can stop it with a camera,
but not with a pencil."
"Have you noticed this scene
at our left," I went on. "It's
"Oh, sure," he agreed without
"Are you going to sketch that

the breakers paralleling the
horizon, that huge tangle of
'Too massive," said Ernie.
"That's camera stuff. The sketch
pad can't compete with the cam
era and shouldn't try. That's a
perfect Kodachrome shot, and
it's been shot a thousand times."
That was my first lesson in a
highly enjoyable trip that turned
out to be full of them. With the
opening of the 1949 motorlog
season, The Oregonian faced the

Gulls on patrol banked low to

Loafing along southward, we
caught a sudden glimpe of

"Hold It!" Ernie exclaimed.
'There's a picture."
Newport, along the old bay
waterfront, was a special prob
lem. "There's enough material here
to keep a man sketching all
summer," Ernie said.
He wanted a closeup of a light
house, and Heceta head light
was accessible. We climbed the
steep hillside behind the light,
and Ernie squatted on his heels
and sketched until his legs trem

Depoe Bay was an "artist's
paradise," and Ernie wished he
could stay a week. Amid knee
high salt-marsh grass, he set his
folding stool and sketched the
still-life fleet in a boatyard.
Masts and trolling booms leaned
at all angles. Out of their ele

awkward and uncomfortable. A
gnarled snag that had tried to
grow where no tree could sur
