Symposium participant: Linda Daily

Hello fellow Urban Sketchers!

I am an eight year Portland resident, prior to that I lived in Seattle (6 years) and San Francisco (20 years). I guess you could say my husband and I like urban environments.

I have been painting in watercolor for many years and formerly taught classes at Portland Community College.

Urban sketching is something I have mostly done while traveling. I feel I really capture the moments and a sense of place when I sketch on location. Since I have found the wonderful Portland Sketchcrawlers group, I have enjoyed sketching in 'my own backyard'.

I have recently finished 14 WC illustrations for a European food importer, my first'commercial' commission.

Now I am ready for summer and outside sketching!

I am an art supply addict, our sons call me a 'journal junkie'! I am thrilled to know we will receive wonderful samples at the Symposium--what a lovely surprise.

I look forward to meeting the other participants and instructors and learning new skills.

I already met Todd from Chicago, a fellow participant, on a recent visit to the Windy City. I was drawing the Tribune Tower and he was sketching the Wrigley building. I guess it is really a small world when it comes to urban sketching!
