After about a year of following several Urban Sketcher blogs, I finally got out the door and went on an official Urban Sketcher sketchcrawl in Richmond. It was a perfect spring day. We met at the Virginia Center for Architecture, were given maps of a route to follow and off we went. It was immediately overwhelming- there are so many great things to draw in Richmond. The selection was limited a bit by the need to sit in shade. I brought a small folding chair which worked well.
Inspired by some of the sketchers I talked to that seem to draw all the time- they are very fast and fluid, I am trying to draw more. I carry a tiny sketchbook (2"x3") in my purse and sketch while running errands with my husband. I did this today while waiting for him at the eye doctor. I like all the glamour shots of people wearing glasses.
