Portland sketches

Urban Sketchers Symposium: Portland, OR USA - Correspondents

I finally managed to post some of my sketches from Portland! It was such an amazing experience to spend time with other sketchers, meet some of the fellow correspondents in real life, and explore the city. This was also an opportunity to try new materials thanks to our sponsors - I tried my hand at accordion-fold Moleskine: to be honest, I favor the watercolor papers a lot more, and I was struggling with this paper until I discovered that Faber-Castell Pitt pen glides well on its smooth surface. I did a line drawing of panoramic views I've seen from the riverfront, and did small portraits of fellow sketchers at dinner in the space underneath it: I was able to capture glimpses of Gerard, Ronnie, Kumi, Tia, Jason, Gabi, Frank, Matt, Lapin, and Isabel. More of my sketches are collected in my blog here.

  15. Research and understand the rating system used for video games. There are some games that are inappropriate for children, which you want to avoid. Games are rated from EC, for Early Childhood, to AO, for Adults Only. When choosing a game for another person, check that it is suitable for their age group. https://hackeroffice.com/
