After my USK Chicago meet up I was totally intrigued with urban sketching. Initially it was difficult for me to get motivated to sketch. However once I got the hang of it, I started sketching often. Thanks to the extreme winter in Chicago, all my sketches were done indoors, mostly at cafes. I also did a sketch of Trader Joes (grocery store) from my window. I realized the more I sketched the more comfortable I got with sketching on location. I must admit that sketching on location can be a little intimidating especially for an introvert like me. You get a lot of looks, glances and sometimes even small talks. Eventually you do get used to it and not let all of that affect the sketching. Below are some sketches that I did on these months.
