BCN Planning Meeting, a new palette and a new bag

April 1, 2013 | 2 Comments

I can’t tell you how excited I am that two of my great sketching friends in Sydney (as well as one from Edinburgh!!!) have booked to go to the USk Symposium in BCN.

Today was our first meeting … but only Alissa could make it. As an experienced symposium goer (all have been privileged to go to all 3 previous ones) I am keen to share all my advice with them and answer any question – no matter how silly! Actually some of my advice might be silly… but DO start planning to keep a spare 4kg in your suitcase for any symposium goodies or local art supply purchases you make!

I am afraid that I got into ‘symposium mode’… what’s that? Well, let me say that we were both exhausted after 3 hours of USK chatter! I might formulate my top ten symposium tips over the next little while…

Ah! Preparation is the most fun part of the trip- even though it can do your head in when you have too much to think about, and too much advice from someone that never stops talking….

I took the few minutes when Alissa was out buying food/ coffee to sneak these two rushed sketches… I am afraid my chicken doesn’t look like chicken but I was hungry and it disappeared before I had finished sketching
