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!


  1. Great watercolor of the Chrysler Building! I visit NYC enough to immediately recognize it. Would love to see more! Do you have a flickr photostream?

  2. Thanks Marcia! I tried to add more images but I am a complete beginner at blogs,uploading images,etc.
    I will try again.Yes,there are a few images on my flickr.

  3. Hi Linda, loved your introduction and your sketches as well. I liked the detail of the street lamp at Grant St. a lot!... See you soon!


  4. This article is such a nice and interesting one, I'm very satisfied with the provided contents. I hope more excellent articles would be posted in your website. Best Doctors in Pakistan Thank you so much for this and keep sharing.

  5. College Counseling Agree to your words, study for SAT is a must when required to be admitted in a college, but, one should not have to be lacked behind in mending his or her skills.
