January 2021 @home meeting

For their January 2021 @ home 'meeting', the Urban Sketchers Luxembourg were invited to sketch their favorite spot in their home in three entirely different techniques, at least one of which they had never tried before. 

The challenge, in these times of unfortunate restrictions, was to stretch our own personal boundaries -  a good intention for this new year to come!

It yielded wonderful results: playful, intimate and experimental sketches. 

The only, but most important, downside was that we could not meet in person, wish each other a good year, sketch together and have a drink-and-draw session afterwards :-(

Let's have a peek in the sketcher's homes:

Athena Georgakelos

mixed media (water color/gouache/marker)

Roger Jenkins, once unleashed, could not stop experimenting.

Arnaud De Meyer

Arnaud posted this masterful sketch for the January @home meeting of USkLuxembourg... He offers us a glimpse of his beautiful bay window.




I definitely suspect Arnaud is hiding something from us (or did the former occupant of the house move out?!?!) ;-)

 Isabelle Yegles-Becker

Anna Yegles

photo and ipad painting
Gaby Krein

Jean-Pol Léonard





Leen Van Bogaert

oil on glass + monotype


sewing machine sketching


As I have been painting and sketching for quite a long time, and I have always liked to try out new things, it was not so easy to think of a technique I had not used before. I got some inspiration here .

The results are a far cry from this virtuoso needlewoman, but it felt good to try!



P.S.

 

Ideas for our future meetings and activities are more than welcome, as we cannot foresee how and where we will be able to sketch with the ever changing COVID measures (and the ever changing weather for that matter).

USk Luxembourg: January 2021

 


First of all we wish you all a healthy, happy and creative new year 2021!

Unfortunately, due to the lockdown measures, we cannot meet now to sketch on location and we spend most of our time at home. 

That's why we invite you for this January 2021 ‘meeting’


TO SKETCH YOUR FAVORITE SPOT IN YOUR HOME
IN THREE COMPLETELY DIFFERENT TECHNIQUES




The choice is wide: left-handed drawing, digital drawing, collage, paint, ink, chalk, mirror image drawing, blind drawing, watercolor, gouache, charcoal, sand, even embroidery or a sewing machine, why not?

Make at least one of your drawings in a technique you've never tried before: a nice challenge for a new year full of new things...

We invite you to post your three sketches before Monday January 4 2021: you can post them in our Facebook group or on Instagram with hashtag #uskluxembourg or send them to us at this mail address to post them for you.

We hope to meet again very soon,

--------

Tout d'abord, nous souhaitons à toutes et à tous une bonne année 2021 pleine de santé, bonheur et créativité!

En raison des mesures COVID nous ne pouvons pas nous réunir maintenant pour dessiner ensemble sur place et nous passons la plupart de notre temps à l’intérieur, à la maison. 

C'est pourquoi nous vous invitons pour cette "réunion" de janvier 2021 de

DESSINER VOTRE ENDROIT PRÉFÉRÉ DANS VOTRE MAISON 
SELON TROIS TECHNIQUES COMPLÈTEMENT DIFFÉRENTES

Le choix est large : dessin avec la main gauche, dessin numérique, collage, peinture, encre, craie, dessin en miroir, dessin à l'aveugle, aquarelle, gouache, fusain, sable, pourquoi pas la broderie ou machine à coudre?

Faites au moins un de vos dessins dans une technique que vous n'avez jamais essayée auparavant : un beau défi pour une nouvelle année pleine de nouveautés...

 Nous vous invitons à poster vos trois dessins avant le lundi 4 janvier 2021 : vous pouvez les poster dans notre groupe Facebook ou sur Instagram avec hashtag #uskluxembourg, ou nous les envoyer à cette adresse mail pour les poster pour vous.

En espèrant de vous revoir bientôt,
