Jeff from Netherland whom I've met in Manchester this summer was visiting Japan, so we had short sketch session with Eriko, Atsuko, Miyu in Nishiogikubo. This place is non of tourist site, just a ordinary Tokyo town, yet we found charm there through sketchers point of view.
Next day, we had sketch meeting in Ikebukuro. Kwin from Thailand, whom I've met in Singapore last year, Atsuko, and I drew one of the most busy scene of Tokyo street.
It was always joy to discover something new by seeing fellow sketchers way of drawing and tools.
That's why small group sketch session is good to communicate, and to learn.
