Sketches from the day before the Symposium
D06_WE11_01 Day before SB
Lots of sketchers now in the city so I was starting to get very excited (‘flustered” and in nervous energy for the symposium.. I was an instructor this year) so hard to settle for a sketch.
I wanted to sketch straight on to the church, but as everyone was doing this view, I thought I would be social-able…
this sketch is to get the ratty-ness out of my system
D06_WE11_02 Santa Barbara
Next sketch – the one I wanted…. nice calm, elevational sketch so that I can understand the design of the facade
D06_WE11_03 SB Neighbourhood
After doing the sketch I wanted to do, I then drew what REALLY caught my eye… amazing intersection and crazy buildings in wonderful colours…. love this city!
D06_WE11_04 Dinner 1 with Nina and Lynne
knew that being an instructor would be very different and would mean that I wouldn’t get much opportunity to sketch… and this was one fot he main reasons why I decided to go early.
Due to meeting Frank, an instructors meeting and registration, I did not sketch anything all afternoon (a shock to the system after the craziness of the past 5 days!) …. but when I sat down for dinner with Nina and Lynne, even though I was hungry, I just had to do a quick sketch.
So from now on, my sketches will be more rushed as I am hungry, tired, talking to fellow USkers but still trying to sketch (reflex sketching)
D06_WE11_05 Dinner 2 with Shari
I turned up late for the ice-breaker portrait party and it was already totally packed, dark and noisy. I am not really one for crowds, so was very happy when Shari (who I had just met) and her husband decided to leave and have dinner. I didn’t need to eat but I sure loved the company.
