Sunset with the Urban Sketchers

The San Diego Urban Sketchers Symposium kicked off tonight with a Drink and Draw in Little Italy. The plaza overlooks the harbor and seats a good-sized crowd. We all visited and made art together as the sun went down. It was fun to move around the tables, meet the artists who came from distant places, and see their amazing art.

    Interesting to do art “on the spot”. Never done that. I can spend 15. minutes on a sketch. Leave it for two days. 10 mins. Work on it the next day or not. Those breaks give me time to “process” the sketch internally. And make changes. If need be.

    • Both approaches lead to different experiences. The ‘art on the spot’ reminds me of my younger days and skiing a slope that is beyond my skill level. You commit, push off, and use everything you know to stay upright to the end. It is not for every moment of skiing or painting, but ever so exhilarating when you do it.
