Sheffield Sketchcrawl! #4 22/01/11

Happy Belated 30th International Sketchcrawl Day! I hope you had a sketchful day. Here’s what we got up to in Sheffield:

First stop (after stocking up on supplies at Blackwells over the road), Sheffield Central Library, an Art Deco delight. After I’d spent the week reading about the Wiener Werkstatte, it seemed apt:

All that architectural detail of the facade wasn’t working for me in pen or pencil, so I looked the other way. Only nearly got trampled on a couple of times: Surrey Street from opposite Central Library - urban sketch by Sian Hughes art
It was a flippin’ cold day, let me tell you. After 20 mins I’d had enough (although I sort of liked the wobbly effect my shivering hands gave my drawing!) so went indoors to find everyone else sketching in the foyer:

Then, after lunch, on to The Cathedral Church of St. Marie on Norfolk Row, very quiet – lovely! Can you spot Lynne sketching in this one?

Plenty of interesting doors here:

Stained glass is difficult to draw:

Finally, to the pub for debriefing! Some brilliant work produced – go and see Lynne’s picture gallery to see what everyone else got up to!
