Gearing up for Day 2!
I wasn’t super happy with my work from day 1 so I wanted to warm up with some sketches before breakfast.
So great to make new sketching friends over breakfast – Shiho and Elizabeth.
And catch up with what Gerard had been doing – wow!
Morning Workshop: Urban architecture with Frank Ching
It’s no understatement to say that I was looking forward to doing a workshop with the legend Frank Ching.
So many things that Frank said stayed in my head for the rest of my trip!
Another ‘rebel’ sketch – just trying to fit in a typical Liz sketch after trying something different.
Lunch and lectures
A fun lunch with some of the boys… interesting conversations about having family members serving in the military. Sketching my meal of course!
And a nice stationery shop.
And then another fascinating lecture
Nearly everyone was sketching!
A second lecture – this one was incredible! Veronica shared her sketches and experiences on September 11.
Afternoon Workshops: Urban line with Lapin
A huge group of sketchers got on a street car to get to the afternoon sketching location… and of course people were sketching
We then had a fun session sketching the Ira Keller Fountain
I was amazed by Jason!
Not sure I would be comfortable sitting there!
And another sketch…
… and more of Suzanne’s work!
As indicated in my notes, I was hanging out for some architecture sketching so did two quick sketches on the walk back.
What can I say about this photo?
Catching up with some of the USK correspondents and talking about big ideas.
My sketches from this drink session and then dinner with Suzanne and Polly.
