Urban sketching has been on the periphery of what I do for a number of years, but it was only thanks to being invited to an Urban Sketchers Singapore private view last summer where I met the fabulous Tia Boon Sim and colleagues, that I felt really inspired to focus on this wonderful style of reportage drawing. Now almost a year on...I am completely addicted!
Last October I started an informal Manchester urban sketching group with help from USK Correspondent Caroline Johnson who had recently returned to England from Rennes, France (now a good friend)! We are a small but committed group of sketchers and hopefully we'll be an official group soon.
