Urban Sketchers Texas had 5 representatives at the 3rd International Urban Sketchers Symposium in Santo Domingo...that's got to be some kind of record. The schedule was grueling, but had plenty of opportunities for exploring and socializing. The workshops consistently pushed us beyond our limits to new heights. As an example, compare my sketch of the Parque Colon made before the symposium, and the one made during the "Improvising with Lines and Colors" workshop by Inma Serrano and Orling Dominguez. I think the results speak for themselves.
