Cape Town Urban Sketchers

While visiting friends and family near Cape Town, South Africa, we connected with the Cape Town urban Sketchers through their facebook group and got to meet with them at Chalk Farm for a morning of sketching and getting to know 16 new friends with at least one common interest – sketching!


Read more about our meetup here. Here I’ve captured the three gals facing me over the table, busy with their sketchbooks.

Permanent pen and watercolor washes with waterpen.


Here I’ve made a quick stab at capturing our friends Dick and Carla at their very first attempts at urban sketching and plein air work. Good job! Keep going!


Caught these nice shadows and pretty cottage in Chalk Farm before we headed home.

Watercolours in my larger sketchbook. It opens up to a nice large size that is still manageable to carry without getting exhausted.
