Monday was rather unusual. I was visiting by fellow Urban Sketcher, Liz Steel from Sydney, who is on an international sketching tour (with her little friend Borromini Bear).
She started in the US, attending the 1st Urban Sketchers symposium, has recently been in Scotland and is shortly off to Europe. Wow. Are we jealous?
The only time we stopped talking, laughing or eating (sometimes all 3 at once) was the hour we spent concentrating on drawing, at Sheffield's old General Cemetary.
You can see both these sketches close-up, plus more photos, in my Picture Gallery.
In her other life, Liz is an architect, so one of her favourite things to draw is European architecture (she loves British cathedrals, castles and stately homes too - her focus over the last few weeks).
I must investigate having some of my sketchbook work bound like this, as it's such a lovely format.
You can keep an eye on Liz's progress on her travel blog, updating in transit from her iPhone.
