I am very excited to participate in the Urban Sketchers Symposium and I feel lucky that my current city of residence was chosen for the location! It looks like I'm the first participant to introduce myself here; I hope my nervousness at that doesn't show through too much! I look forward to meeting you all in person!
blog and also a flickr pool. I love the camraderie and support the group gives and think they are all such wonderfully talented people!
Fingerless gloves and dressing for the elements have helped for sketching on colder days, but I've yet to master the art of holding an umbrella and managing to sketch in the rain. Maybe that comes after years of living in the Pacific Northwest!
I'm really looking forward to learning about the tools other people use and learning how to improve my sketches. One thing I've learned since I started on this sketching journey, is to just keep sketching. So I try to as often as possible. I sketch during meetings at work, in my private journal, while I'm sitting around talking and when I make a big effort to go out and sketch.
See y'all in July!
