Ever since I visited the Minster in July, to stake it out and plan our day of sketching, I have been really looking forward to SketchCrawl North's special York Minster SketchCrawl and, when it finally arrived last weekend, I wasn't disappointed.
We had the best turn-out I think SketchCrawl North has ever had: there must have easily been 40 people, including at least half a dozen newbies (including one mum and her 10 year old daughter who had never ever sketched before). We even had one author who came to do on-the-spot writing instead of sketching.
I took lots of different media with me, as I felt in the mood for experimentation. The sketches on the grey paper, like the one above, were done in a brand new Strathmore sketchbook, one I was given during my time at the symposium this summer. As you can see, I am still using the drawing buildings like monsters technique I learned there (thanks Inma!).
I bought the rainbow pencil there too!
You can read more about our day and see the rest of my sketches here.
