Fiesta de la Naturaleza Urbana de Los Ángeles

[by Shiho Nakaza in Los Angeles, California USA] I am honored to be invited by Los Angeles County Natural History Museum with a group of fellow sketchers to attend their L.A. Nature Fest event last weekend. I loved seeing many colors and shapes of plants in bloom at the Nature Garden, and it made me […]

Repasando mis bocetos

by Shiho Nakaza, Los Angeles, California USA Here’s something to reflect upon as I close out the year…. I found an old sketchbook while cleaning out my place. It is Handbook panorama sketchbook with watercolor paper, and I had a few sketches in it and the rest was blank. Remembering that I didn’t like the […]

Esbozo de acuarela en el Museo Redpath

By Marc Taro Holmes in Montreal, QC Yesterday was fourth Sunday sketching with our drawing group Urban Sketchers Montreal. With the fall chill in the air, we returned to the Redpath Museum. Blog readers will know, I love a chance to draw from taxidermy animals and mounted skeletons. So this was just a relaxing day […]

Dulwich Picture Gallery: un oasis en la ciudad

Si nunca has estado, la Dulwich Picture Gallery es un espacio fabulosamente verde y tranquilo, escondido en medio del ajetreado y mugriento sur de Londres. Fuimos el viernes, para ver la exposición Arte y Vida, que fue probablemente la exposición más inspiradora que he visto desde la asombrosamente fantástica exposición de Hockney [...].

¡Los dibujantes comparten un SketchCrawl con los autores!

I had told them about Urban Sketching during a lecture at their conference a while back. We spent the day at Manchester’s science museum MOSI, which is a great place. You could […]

Sketching in the National Gallery

John and I had a little trip to London last week. We mostly spent the time in museums but we also had an afternoon in the National Gallery. Obviously the paintings were wonderful and inspiring, but the building itself is lovely, so I sat on the floor (resting my sore feet) and whipped out my […]

42ª Jornada Mundial de SketchCrawl en el Museo Universitario de Manchester

Unlike the lucky folks living in warm, sunny climes, SketchCrawl North decided it would be prudent to spend World Wide SketchCrawl Day indoors. We’ve done Sheffield’s museums to death, so we took the train to Manchester, to the natural history museum.  The museum is a real treasure and much bigger than I expected. It’s stuffed full with all sorts. […]
