Urban sketchers in Clermont-Ferrand
Urban sketchers are always easy to spot - they are the ones whipping out their books as soon as there is a little break in the proceedings, obsessively sketching each other over dinner, and plonked down in the middle of streets and squares diligently scribbling away. Here are a few images and sketches of the sketchers at C-L during the 12th Rendezvous du Carnet de Voyage:
The students of Mario Linhares, visiting from Portugal and to be found sketching around town during the festival...
And Gerard Michel from Belgium, doing one of this detailed architectural sketches...
I did a sketch of him sketching at our dinner Sunday evening, where a bunch of us met up at the Crèperie 1513 - you can see him here in the upper right:
Here are a few more dinner sketches:
you can see the rest in my set on Flickr - my rendez vous with C-L
And a final dinner sketch, which was actually the first one - meeting up with Kim Marohn and Martine Kervagoret of the Paris sketchers on our way down:
I did loads of sketching every day on this trip, but most of it was in other people's sketchbooks and I forgot to take photos. A few more sketches from the trip are still left to post though - more tomorrow.
