On Saturday we had another SketchCrawl in Sheffield...
After last month's Mad Hatter's Tea Party, we thought we ought to get out and about again, so we met at Highfield Library: an interesting and rather imposing building from the street. However, we were all glad to be sitting inside instead, as it was a really wet and horrible morning.
We mingled with the 'normal' folk, and tried to behave ourselves, though the library was pretty quiet at 10.30 in the morning, so 90% of the people in there were sketchers:
I zoomed back to the house (thanks for the lift Dee), let Wendy in, then zoomed back to the cafe, to show the rest of the team the way to my house (phew) where there was quite a treat in store...
It looked amazing and tasted even better (I was glad I didn't give in to cake-shaped temptation at the Rude Shipyard). As rather a reluctant dinner-party cook myself, I am incredibly grateful to both Wendy and Matthew for volunteering to feed 12 people.
As you can see, we all wore masks for the meal, just to make things interesting then when we had all filled our boots, we laid out servings of the various dished to draw:
This is Maya's drawing of me in my devil-bull mask:

A fabulous day. Thanks again to Matthew and Wendy for all their hard work. If you would like to see more photos or a selection of other people's sketches, or if you would like to come along with us, join our Facebook group SketchCrawl North.
