Urban Sketching : San Sebastian Cathedral

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.
