I have followed various urbansketching groups on Instagram for ages and love so many of their street scene drawings. Until now I haven't lived anywhere where there is a local group but I was lucky enough to be welcomed into the urbansketchershk group and their wanchaifastsketchers lunchtime drawing group. I enjoy sketching on my own but to sketch with a group of such enthusiastic and talented artists was such a pleasure.... also it meant the attention from passers by was diluted between us for a change!
Now all I need to do is improve my cantonese!... I'm working on it!
I think my watercolour sketching has improved since doing so much more of it, also thinking about these drawings as working sketches really helps to keep them looser and more spontaneous. An improvement on my previously rather stiff watercolours.
