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!
