January Sketchwalk at Quezon Memorial Circle

On the last Saturday of January, Urban Sketchers Philippines had their first official sketchwalk of the year. The sketchers gathered at the Quezon City Memorial Circle, a national park best known for its majestic mausoleum. A sarcophagus inside the monument contains the remains of Manuel Luis Quezon, the second official President of the Philippines. The monument has also been mandated as a National Shrine.

The sketchers drew the area around the monument, including the many families and groups spending their weekend at the park. The park is a haven for families having a picnic, friends riding their skateboards and bicycles, school groups rehearsing dances, photographers honing their craft, and of course, sketchers who love drawing on location!

Great turnout!

After the sketchwalk, some of the sketchers headed over to Conspiracy Garden Cafe for the last day of the Rough Notations exhibit and egress of the show. We took the opportunity to sketch around the venue and draw each other over dinner.

It was a great day to sketch and just hang out. We can't wait for the next!
