Preaching to the Choir

This July, I had the pleasure of speaking at the 4th Annual Urban Sketchers Symposium in Barcelona. The event attracts sketchers from all around the world for four days of workshops, demos, lectures and drawing events. It was exciting to meet so many artists that I admire, and to learn from them.

While delivering my lecture, entitled Had to Be There: Drawing on Experience, I couldn’t help but notice all the heads bobbing up and down as I spoke. Not because I had made a good point, necessarily, but because everyone was drawing the experience.
