A Visit with San Diego Urban SketchersPosted: November 5, 2015
The aspect that I enjoy most about the Urban Sketchers (USk) organization is its worldwide network of artists. When I traveled to San Diego recently I was fortunate to go at a time when the local group had scheduled a weekend event. For this reason I was able to cross paths with my fourth USk chapter.
San Diego Urban Sketchers held their 10/18 meetup on Coronado Island. The weather was accommodating, the scenery was captivating, and the company was incredibly welcoming. As usual, I was blown away by the artwork exhibited at the show-and-tell session toward the end of the get-together.
My sketch was of the west side of the historic Hotel del Coronado … and includes an attempt to capture a spin class that was being held outdoors that morning.
The employees on the beach were very accommodating as I crouched in the lounge area to sketch the scene (green sweatshirt in background).
I hope to visit this group again and I encourage fellow sketchers to look for local USk chapters wherever their travels take them!
