Urban Sketchers, Manchester

I joined a lovely group of like-minded people and spent two hours sketching in the Centre of Manchester. Now I should say at this point that I was suffering from a bad chest cold and two hours in draughty Manchester (although miraculously dry!) isn’t a brilliant combination with said cold. So, the first place I headed for was St Ann’s church in the square and I sat in the warm to draw the interior. I then braved the big outdoors and drew an arcade, a couple of statues and a bit of a skyline. When I got home I’d forgotten that we had a town planning consultative meeting to go to so I drew that as well!

        Hello Rob
        I suspect that not being on Facebook could be a bit of a problem for you as that’s the way that members to get hear about the next meeting. The lady that organises the group is Simone Ridyard and can be contacted through Facebook BUT I don’t think you have to be on Facebook to send a message and so try the link below:
        You’ll see a “send message’ icon on the right hand side (under the artwork) where you’ll be able to contact Simone.
        Hope to meet you on a future event.
