Sketching At Manchester Art Gallery

Last month I posted about an urban sketchcrawl in Manchester. I wasn’t very complimentary it as I was cold and miserable at the end of it. However, I decided to try another one, and I’m glad I did. Three dozen or so Manchester Urban Sketchers met this afternoon at Manchester Art Gallery for a couple of hours. Despite a lull in the wind and rain, most stayed inside to draw, but I ventured outside – all be it only a few yards up the street. After a week in New York when the daytime temperature only rose above freezing at the end of the week – and that was when it snowed – I wanted to sketch outside.

After drawing this I went back inside and sketched a couple of ‘modern’ chairs in the Design Gallery. I was able to chat to other sketchers – one of my complaints last time. We then met together to look at each other’s work.

I’m really looking forward to the next one on the 26th February!

  1. Thanks John, delighted today was better than the January Sketchcrawl. This is much more typical of our outings. Look forward to seeing you at another one of our sessions!

    Impressed that you can draw in a group. I struggle with that or with people in general.
