The concept of urban sketchers
was developed by the Spanish artist Gabriel Campanario
now living in Seattle. Urban sketchers accepts only on site drawing, nothing from postcards or photos.
It is a matter of exercise and discipline and I must admit it is also fun sitting somewhere and just sketch the whole scenery.
The urban sketchers network is growing and has now over 1500 members.
For Bremen I would appreciate it very much if we could build up our Bremen group. If you are interested please visit Urban Sketchers Bremen
Here are some of the sketches I did. They are published on my flickr account http://www.flickr.com/photos/manfredschloesser/
I am using a moleskine book and a simple pen. Sometimes I add some color from my mini water color set. And sometimes I am experimenting with my new livescribe pen.And here is my photo stream on Flickr

This woman from the Netherlands wore such an impressive hat and matching sunglasses, I had to sketch her.
During our trip to the Canary island of La Gomera in October and November 2010 I had the time do fill my sketch book.
