Traveling from Davis, CA, I grabbed the chance to sketch alongside with the San Francisco urbansketchers as well as Liz Steel and Jane Blundell, notable urbansketchers both from Australia. I even met sketchers who came from Chico (3 hours away) and Washington.
The weather was surprisingly warm despite the 70 degree. About 60 or so sketchers gathered at Grace Cathedral at Nob Hill. Beautiful architecture and for those who love buildings it was a sketcher’s dream. For me I stuck close to simple subjects… a couple, a window, a door and a statue….All my urbansketches are done in a pocket size Moleskine watercolor sketchbook. “Keeping it simple” is my name.
As usual after three hours of sketching we all met at Huntington Park to share our sketching experiences and to meet up with old friends and get to know new ones.
