I’ve been out with Liverpool Urban Sketchers since the start of the year. I have to say that drawing buildings was akin to sticking my head in a vat of boiling oil, but, like trees and water, I knew that pushing against my limits is always rewarding in the end.
Liverpool Urban Sketchers is part of an international movement which began in Seattle in 2007. Their motto is “See the World, One Drawing at a Time” and all work is done on location rather than from photographs. http://www.urbansketchers.org
It is great fun meeting up with others – 10am on the first Saturday of the month at a different location each time – and then sharing our work over lunch. I was quite shy about drawing in public spaces but knowing other artists are around makes it so much easier. Artists come from all backgrounds and disciplines. Some are experienced, others are not, and I have learned a great deal.
