Yorkshire Sculpture Park sketch crawl

By Paul Morton






This was a sketch crawl of just one - me, tho I did see at least 4 others doing the same.
The weather was wonderful (Thursday 29th reached 28 degrees), I'd just sent off my last job, couldn't jump on the mountain bike due to an injury so thought right! I've not managed to join the Sheffield crawlers so i'll have my own right now.
The Jaume Plensa sculpture exhibition is breathtakingly superb. I heartily recommend it and I'm sure YSP will make a fantastic location for any future sketch crawl if the Sheffield contingent want to travel up the M1?? Please contact me if anyone wants to make a future date and i'll arrange the details.
My energy trailed off after a break for lunch, so in future I think I should stick at the drawing and reward myself with the break at the end.

  1. Hello John,

    Thanks for showing the results of your sketch-crawl. One of my very favorite public art installations is the Jaume Plensa sculpture/fountain in Chicago:

  2. Love these sketches, Paul. It's an inspirational place. You're welcome to join our next scrawlcrawl in York if it's not too far. We might be going back to the railway museum.

  3. Really evocative drawings Paul! The surrealism of the 'tree huggers' have been given a soft, very humanistic feel.

  4. Just come across these lovely sketches Paul. You've really captured the magic of the show. What a shame you were on your own and did manage to hook up with our visit.

    Have you noticed we are having another SketchCrawl in Sheffield very soon (Nov 6th)? Love to have you along. If you join the Facebook Group SketchCrawl North, you can keep up with what other folks are doing up this end of the world https://www.facebook.com/groups/203434169726837/

We love comments and really appreciate the time it takes to leave one.
Interesting and pithy reactions to a post are brilliant but we also LOVE it when people just say they've read and enjoyed.
We've made it easy to comment by losing the 'are you human?' test, which means we get a lot of spam. Fortunately, Blogger recognises these, so most, if not all, anonymous comments are deleted without reading.
