Hello peeps, I forgot to blog about our last Bristol Urban Sketchers meet up (we have the latest one this afternoo) . Usually we meet in town and chat, sketch, regroup for some lunch and sometimes a cheeky pint too. Well, under lockdown this of course has to change so we have gone virtual!
We sketched using google etc in Alhambra, Spain at the suggestion of one of our members. Well, what a beautiful location, some amazing scenery, small backstreets and amazing buildings too. It was also great being able to catch up with the others and sketch whilst chatting to others too.
Sadly my notebook is not great for watercolour as the paint sinks straight in so ideally I should just use pencil or pen and ink (as we know from an earlier post on here its not like I don't have a "few" blank notebooks in the stash!!) but I keep forgetting that I am sketching at home and don't have to use my travel kit and could actually pop upstairs and grab the pencils!!
I am looking forward to being able to sketch again outside and meeting up with the group, but in the mean time, this is a really good alternative and a great way to explore other places, albeit virtually
