Sheffield Sketchcrawl! #3 04/12/10

Cold day started with a vanilla latte at Starbucks on Devonshire Street and turnout was excellent considering the lingering snow and flipping freezing temperatures. I was immediately concerned I’d not applied enough layers but luckily, apart from walking between venues, we remained inside for most of the day.

I drew a car! I can’t draw cars.

A hop over the road to the Forum cafe. The soup special was cream of tomato and there was a be-hatted man behind the bar.

After I’d collected Dad from outside the Forum where he was sketching on Devonshire Green (mad), we had a quick half hour sketch inside the City Hall foyer – the ceiling is beautiful but too hard to draw ;)

Can you spot Michael, Martin and Bryn? This is shortly beofre we got kicked out for being ROWDY (joking: see Lynne’s blog).

After lunch and chat at Bank Street Arts, we moved up to the Cathedral. You might be able to see the silhouette of my Dad sketching in the chapel in the distance, and a lady lighting a candle in front of the statue of M, J & the baby J.

Some sort of angel/crusader and flags. Lots o’ flags.

Then onto the Grapes for a beverage and de-brief. Managed not to take ANY photos again (gah!), but hopefully Lynne will collect any that were taken over at the Flickr group or on her picture gallery blog :)

  1. Fantastic sketches. I do envy you your sketchcrawls. By the way, I got my kid a Wreck This Journal as a little 12th b’day present. She was quite taken with the idea of it, went through it doing all the trashing things with enormous enthusiasm, then tossed it aside without having made a single mark in it! Ah well. Still might get myself one.Jx

  2. They are really good fun! Every town should do it! :D – although apparently the organising of it is much harder work than Lynne expected :/Aww, maybe your 12 year old will come back to the mark-making part – in the meantime definitely get yourself one to trash! :D x
