[Lis Watkins in London] It was lovely to be
invited to spend time in the Italian part of Switzerland earlier this month and
give two workshops as part of the inaugural USk Week in Intragna, a small
hilltop village in the canton of Ticino. The event was hosted by
Mario Leimbacher, with Vincent Desplanche and Johanna Krimmel teaching workshops
As well as lots of sketching, there were also
visits to local restaurants, hikes across the stunning landscape plus free time
in the afternoons. It was great to meet so many of the Swiss Urban Sketcher
community and I was made to feel very welcome. Mario is planning future
events so do get in touch with him if you’d like more information.
Here are some of my sketchbook spreads from the
week, including another attempt at ‘doing a Swasky’ in drawing the very
picturesque Intragna Piazza. I’ll get the hang of the corners one day!
