It’s here! Day 1 of the Urban Sketchers Symposium in Manchester. Symposium days are crazy, with so many people to meet and workshops to conduct and attend. If you want some uninterrupted sketch time, the only way to do it is get up super-early and join an early-bird gang for a some sketch time before the day begins. Today’s early morning sketching was by the canals.
Boats, bridges and reflections. Even the sun made an appearance.
Afternoon sketchcrawl. I love seeing a landscape littered with sketchers.
I didn’t miss the chance to draw a few sketchers.
No sketches from the opening reception at the really grand Town Hall.
That’s Day 1 of the symposium. Tomorrow I teach my workshop and get to take one with Fred Lynch. Crossing my fingers, hoping for no rain. Or maybe just enough rain to create really interesting texture in our sketches.
