LIVERPOOL & MOZART & FUN

I love being an Urban Sketcher, it is fun, fun, fun.!  Perhaps there is a group near you.  Our latest adventure was to Albert Dock in Liverpool.

I urge you to look for a group near you and join.  It is great fun meeting, chatting and sketching with like minded people.

Albert Dock, Liverpool

Inside the Tate cafe in Liverpool.  Eating lunch and using an ordinary pen to try and c apture the Mozart musicians. The nerve of people who kept getting in my way!
I used An Elegant Writer Pen which is great for quick sketches.  

Couldn't wait to do a sketch and add colour.  By the time I had finished this the end of my fingers were painful, it was sooooo cold.

Since joining in October, every week has been freezing cold and damp.  Fingers crossed that the next meeting will be warm and sunny.

  3. Hi Polly. Thanks so much for the post on my blog. I am so pleased the painting cheered your day. That is what motivates me the most. Your sketches are great! I have put aside the sketch book but must pick it up again. When i go through them later there are many great little items that end up becoming paintings. I've been to Albert Dock in Liverpool and loved it. We had a nice time wandering around and exploring. Also the Tate gallery was a highlight. And the people. Found them to be really fascinating and barely could understand what they were saying. Haha. But got my coffee the way i like it so it all worked out well. Happy Painting!

  4. I love that you have found a group of urban sketchers! It is always fun to go out with a group and then share your sketches later. You are doing great outdoors. Have you found that you are starting to sketch faster than you did before? The cold (and rain and hail) is one of the problems with urban sketching...oh wait, there are bugs and sunshine too. lol But it's worth it!
