It was lovely to be invited to spend time in the Italian part of Switzerland earlier this month and give two workshops as part of the inaugural USk Week in Intragna, a small hilltop village in the canton of Ticino. The event was hosted by Mario Leimbacher, with Vincent Desplanche and Johanna Krimmel teaching workshops too.
As well as lots of sketching, there were also visits to
local restaurants, hikes across the stunning landscape plus free time in the
afternoons. It was great to meet so many of the Swiss Urban Sketcher community
and I was made to feel very welcome. Mario is planning future events so do get
in touch with him if you’d like more information.
Here are some of my sketchbook spreads from the
week, including another attempt at ‘doing a Swasky’ in
drawing the very picturesque Intragna Piazza. I’ll get the hang of the corners
I’m quite enjoying sharing my sketching knowledge with
others so do get in touch if you are organising or hosting events and would like me to give
a drawing workshop.
