Last day at Urban Sketchers Symposium in Singapore

Time passes so fast when you’re sketching and having fun.

It has been a great delight to be able to meet so many wonderful sketchers from around the world, and also make new friends with those who share the same passion.

In the morning, I attended Nina Johansson‘s workshop which is about using colours in watercolours. I’ve followed her blog for the longest time and being able to finally see her do a demonstration live is really great.

She talked about how you can neutralise a colour just by adding a complementary colour. For example, to neutralise yellow, you should mix it with purple, which is also mixed with a red (cool) and blue (warm).

Next up, I went over to Waterloo Street because I know that several workshops are happening there. Turns out Suhita was teaching there.

In the afternoon is a very useful session called Big Crit where the participants can get their sketches critiqued by the faculty, the instructors.

Finally, the day of activity ended with the public sketchwalk at the lawn of Singapore Management University.

The turnout was huge. It was incredible to see so many sketchers at one place. It’s really impressive and inspiring. There’s going to be a higher resolution photo coming soon in the next few days, as well as more photos from the symposium.

By the way, it was mentioned during the closing reception that 2016’s symposium will be held in Manchester, UK. It’s time to start saving money.

Here’s the video for the last day.

I hope that you’ll find the videos that I’ve posted over the last few days inspiring. It’s dedicated to those who are unable to join us here in Singapore.
