  • My first morning - Waterscapes

    I'm finally home, trying to catch up after a marathon journey - in the middle of which was the incredible, wonderful Symposium. Three days jam-packed with beautiful, warm, excited sketchers, sharing of ideas and experiences, sketching of course, at every opportunity - though as with many of the other instructors, it wasn't the priority during our teaching workshops, so didn't get as much done as the participants - in the gorgeous, richly decorated and historical setting of Lisbon, a city I am so happy to have been introduced to.

  • Meet the instructor: Cathy Gatland (Johannesburg)

    Cathy Gatland has worked from home for many years doing all kinds of drawing and illustration while raising her children, now almost grown up. Her portfolio of work includes storyboards and children's books as well as illustrations for educational publications. Currently she’s trying to do more painting in her studio now that she has longer stretches of time.  

  • Hello from Johannesburg!

    I am very excited to be joining all the sketchers in Lisbon, and visiting this beautiful city and country for the first time. Meeting some sketching 'legends' and learning and absorbing as much as I possibly can about sketching cities and the beautiful local architecture is going to be nothing short of amazing.
