In the city


While Urban Sketchers around the globe are packing their bags and preparing to leave for the group's first international symposium, in Portland, Oregon, and the schools empty, there's a sense that we should be somewhere else now, too. In a short while, and after a few deadlines, we will be. But there are advantages to being in the city in the summer. Some streets are quieter, queues shorter, tempers calmer, even in the heat. The pace changes.

Nice! Essential! Good!

I follow your blog, and I especially like this picture, and the balance of abstract versus figurative in your drawings. (I'm also an artist, I have a blog too, though my CV this year has been a See-Saw of ups and downs!)
Best wishes from Fiona
