Sunset Sketching at the Harbor

Our official sketchwalk for the month of October was held on the 18th at Harbour Square by Manila Bay. For a change, we scheduled the sketchwalk in the afternoon, hoping to catch the famed Manila Bay sunset. Unfortunately, it was a bit cloudy that day, but that didn't dampen our spirits, and we sketched away!

It was the Urban Sketchers' second time to sketch as a group at Harbour Square; the first time was in January 2012, when USk-PH was only a few months old. That time, ten sketchers attended the event; this time, we had 30 members sketching the scenes at the harbor. We welcomed a lot of new members, many of which we met during the Art Mart in September.

Janeil was able to be at the venue early, thanks to postponed graduate school classes, and lost no time trying out his new Lamy fountain pens.

The urban sketchers found their own spots around the area--some sketching by the coffee shop at Harbour Square, some seated at the very edge of the bay.

Happy faces!

Here are some of the sketches we made that day.









Everyone's! We gave everyone stickers that they can put on their notebooks, sketchpads, and pencil cases.

It was a great turnout, and we're all looking forward to the next sketchwalk!
