  1. This is my favorite episode so far. I first met Chandler on an Urban Sketchers outing in Edmonds and have follower the blog every since. I really enjoy her work and have heard bits and pieces about her process before. But this episode had so many interesting details. Thanks!

    I agree with the visual practice of always framing compositions. I do that all the time, too.
