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:

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?!?!) ;-)

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!



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).
