Happy to be back in Sunny(!!) Seattle

I was so happy this morning to once again join Seattle Urban Sketchers on the waterfront at the University of Washington Seattle campus!  A beautiful, sunny summer day, I sketched the Conibear Shell House designed by amazing architect and friend Bob Hull.  As I sat and counted bays, counted windows, studied the relationships of various elements (drawing something makes you look so closely!), I felt as if I could see Bob's design intent and understand a bit of his genius.

This was an amazing summer of travel...

In the next few weeks, I'll be posting sketches and photos on the international USk blog of Italy (sketching in Venice with Marc Taro Holmes--how great is that??!, teaching the annual DRAW CIVITA workshop in Civita di Bagnoregio, then Rome), Holland (where I hope to teach a workshop next summer)...

...then off to Asia for the wonderful and incredibly well-organized Urban Sketchers symposium in Singapore (where I also gave a lecture on perspective and got to sketch with such talented folks--thank you to the Australian contingent for adopting me!), followed by true adventure sketching with a dream team in Cambodia at Angkor Wat, ending with 5 days in Bangkok, Thailand.  I am so grateful to have these incredible opportunities to travel and learn about what I see through sketching.

Next week, I'll be in Colorado to film an online sketching class for Craftsy called "Perspective for Sketchers"...

Stay tuned... lots of sketches to follow on the USk blog and on my flickr page and blog too.
