I usually listen in to USk Talks live on instagram on Sunday mornings. Not only do they inspire me each week, there’s also a sense of community in everyone turning up to listen, comment and ask questions together.
But i missed the talk live on Sunday, so I’m doing the next-best thing: listening to it later on YouTube while sketching at my desk. Te easiest thing to sketch of course is the mess on my desk, so I try yet another version of it while I listen in.
I’ve only listened to half the talk so far, where Mário Linhares shared the sketchbooks of Delacroix on a expedition in Morocco. And what a fascinating talk it is. If you haven’t listened in, do it now, there is a lot to learn, think about, imagine and be inspired by, even in this time of lockdown when you can’t get on a plane and go to Morocco now!
And this below, in stages, is what happened in my sketchbook as I listened.
So, so happy to be a part of the Urban Sketchers community and so grateful for all the work put into these talks. I look forward to them every week. And when it’s okay to travel again, I am going to Morocco.
