A really enjoyable Urban Sketchers today on a beautiful sunny Autumn day.
We met outside Barnabas Church before finding something to sketch and there was certainly lots of choice. I walked to Gwydir Street and sat down to draw the antiques shop and got to work quickly before a car parked in front, which did eventually happen but I had a rough sketch and was able to work into it from imagination.
Eventually I had to leave as the smell of curry from the local Indian Restaurant became overpowering and I moved onto Mill Road itself and drew H Gee's shopfront. If you ever want a gizmo, this is the place to visit.
Our 2 hours were up really quickly and we met up in the Barnabas Center where the Mill Road History Society had asked us to show our sketches as part of their Open Day. We were unexpectedly asked to give a talk and our leader rose to the challenge and she also asked me a to say a few words.
Afterwards we went to Hot Numbers to eat cake, drink tea and share our sketches.
