On the ground in Singapore

We are here in Singapore just about to register for the Urban Sketchers Symposium for 2015.
We’ve already run into several other sketchers and there are reports of sketchbooks and watercolours across the city.

We spent yesterday wandering around Gardens at the Bay an amazing place with two hugh climate controlled conservatories. In the surrounding grounds stand the Super Trees, massive metal structures some 3 stories tall, with vines and plants growing up them. You can take a lift up the towers and do the sky walk that links several of them. Behind them is the triple building with the ‘surfboard’ on top. Such a sight.

It’s pretty exciting and will get more so when we start our workshops tomorrow.
PS Please excuse the dodgy pictures as I am using the phone camera (no room for the scanner in my luggage).

Urban Sketchers Symposium, Singapore 2015

It’s just been announced that the Urban Sketchers group will be holding their international symposium for 2015 in Singapore. I’ve been quite envious when I have seen the posts of previous symposia in Paraty, Brazil and Barcelona, Spain so having a symposium just a (relatively) short plane ride away from Oz is really exciting.

At present the website has just been set up and you can easily sign up for email updates.

While things are getting underway you might be interested in seeing what the Urban Sketchers Singapore group is getting up to.

I’m working on my planning for 2015. I hope to see you there!
