Urban Sketching in Portland, OregonPosted: April 29, 2012
I am thrilled to announce that Marc Taro Holmes and I will be teaching a watercolour workshop in Portland, Oregon in August. The workshop will focus on capturing the environment around you in watercolor sketches. We’ll emphasize working quickly and making well designed compositions that tell a story and we’ll be doing lots of demonstrations in different locations. I’ve never been to Portland so I’m really looking forward to it — and to meeting all the west coast sketchers. Here’s the link with more details on the Urban Sketchers site.
On my way downtown to sketch I noticed no fewer than five cranes hovering above Griffintown. This little house was sandwiched between two bigger buildings but I bet it won’t be long before this whole residential row will be gone and condos built in their place.
