I like your sketches Heliodor. I was at PNCA Saturday morning looking for the usual sketch crawl folks. Ended up at Jamison Square and did a few and then moved down to Tanners Creek park- in the direction of river .
One of these days I'll figure out how to add images. I just wasted an hour and I've run out of time. I missed closing reception as I had another commitment. Carrie
Hi carrie, to post images, click on that Img button above the compose box. then between the two (img)s that appear, paste in the URL for your image that's on the web. (right click on an image from your blog, click on properties then cut and paste the URL
Thanks Carrie, I'm glad you like my sketches! I had a hard time posting my images too – when I used the img tag and grabbed the url out of flickr I would just get a small box with a question mark in it. Turns out the url that is in the flickr photostream view won't work, I needed to go into the "view all sizes" page and right click on that image and "copy image address" there. That url will end with .jpg and it should work.
heliodor - Lovely line drawings! Your sketches brought me back right there in Portland. I also took TIA's session and we seems to have sketched from same angle. And thank you for your tip about posting images, finally I was able to do it.
Here are some of my sketches of the day. I like Portland. People are so nice and kind, greens are everywhere, water tastes good, beer's fine. Wish I could have stayed a bit much longer. Anyway I indulged in sketching in Portland. Thanks to all local forks who became models of my drawings.
Lovely sketches Kumi! I looked in at your PCNA sketch at while you were working on it and I see that it turned out great. I had a few minutes left of the same session and since I hadn't drawn the building yet I thought I should. Where you were sitting earlier looked like a comfortable spot.
I'm usually with Los Angeles Sketchcrawl group, and I had an opportunity to visit Portland for Urban Sketching Symposium (http://pdx2010.urbansketchers.org/). This was my first time in Portland - I love this city! Thank you to all the Portland sketchers I met who showed me around and took me to good eating/drinking places!
Hi Shiho and Alanna, We went to Portland this summer, what a great city; wish we'd known about the symposium; now I'll look for places we went in your future sketchcrawl posts! Mark Flecher, Tallahassee FL
