Urban Sketching : San Sebastian Cathedral

Went on a sketchwalk with the Urban Sketchers Philippine group last Saturday, which was a lot of fun.  I haven’t been to the San Sebastian Basilica in decades, so it was nice to explore that area.  The gothic extravagance of the cathedral was pretty daunting when I tried to sketch it from up close, so I moved outside of the cathedral to the 7-11 across the street to get this particular view.  The sketch on the left is of one of the 11 boy scouts that died in a tragic plane crash while on their way to a Boy Scout Jamboree in 1963.  Sadly, it wasn’t the boy scout that drew my attention, but the giant hand behind him.

  1. that big hand does make the sketch interesting. loved your view of the church. the old establishment to the left gave it a remarkable depth.

  2. medyo rusty na nga eh but i only have myself to blame. need to find the time to sketch more. i encountered a post that Prof posted at the USK FB account. i wanted to organize the local group sana last year but had no luxury of time and i’m not good at organizing groups LOL so it’s good that meron na pala finally. mid-June daw next crawl. I hope to be there.
