Only chosen 'correspondents' , like Simo Capecchi who painted this beautiful sketch, can post to the Urban Sketchers blog, but there is a sister group on Flickr, open to all, where I was inspired to post some of my own location drawing, like this sketch from my China series:
It was also the Urban Sketchers site that inspired me to attempt to colour some of my pencil drawings (see Messing About in Painter). Imagine my excitement then, to get an email last week from Gabi Campanario, who runs the show, inviting me to become their Sheffield correspondent on the main site!!! I am truly flattered to be considered good enough to sit alongside some of the other quite extraordinarily talented artists.
This is a sketch by Gabi himself, a not inconsiderable talent himself, I'm sure you'll agree:
I have to commit to doing a fresh drawing at least once a month, but I can post them far more regularly if I want to. I can't wait to get going!
In the meantime, you can see more of my China sketches in the Picture Gallery or on my website.
