Heading North…

All packed for four days of sketching indulgence at the USk Manchester Symposium, which starts tomorrow. I’ve done a few final brush-pen sketches about town (thumbnails of street-scenes and quick portraits of passers-by) in rehearsal for my demonstration, and have finished sourcing quotes and images for my lecture on books about sketching. I’ve never been to a Symposium before and am looking forward to being with five hundred fellow sketchers, sharing approaches and ideas, and happily sketching anything we please, whenever the fancy strikes! Maybe see you there?

    Have fun on your trip! I look forward to seeing your sketches. Would you share what’s in your larger palette that you are taking for your trip? Thanks!

    • Ed Mostly says:

      Hi Cathy, the larger palette has the same 6 single pigment colours as the smaller one, with white and Paynes grey as two extras. The 6 are detailed in the ‘paints’ section on the blog. One of the palette wells has a blob each of Quinachridone Gold and Permanent Rose for mixing quick skiing tones. Thanks

    Your presentation was terrific, Ed — both informative and entertaining! And great to finally meet (and sketch) you!
