This is the result of my first and only experience with Urban Sketchers in Manchester…
Many great movies and teas have been had at the Cornerhouse on Oxford Street. I was completely gutted to hear that the building itself would be under redevelopment and possible demolition. It was rewarding to go and sketch the building and support the ‘Save the Cornerhouse’ campaign.
We had one hour to sketch the building, I just had a pencil and black fineliner pen with me. My friend Arturo had come to visit and I managed to drag him along to sketch too. We sat on the corner steps of the Palace hotel on Whitworth Street with the view as photographed below.
Haa we ended up cutting our time short by going inside the Cornerhouse for a final brew…and had a brilliant view of the other urban sketchers dotted around the surrounding streets all hard at work!
Brrr it was coooold.
