I love sketching. I’m not the greatest but sometimes it comes out ok. I tried life drawing but was pretty hopeless and my sketches reminded me of when I was twelve. I recently joined the Urban Sketchers Manchester for an evening with Simone Ridyard (whose sketches are exquisite) for an evening of sketching at Castlefield, Manchester.
My first sketches weren’t great, but this one, my last one of the evening, I felt I’d finally captured something of the scene before me. It reminded me of when I was a theatre designer and used to sketch all the time. When we’d finished we went to the pub. Must keep this one up!
