"David Gentleman's Britain" was my initial inspiration in 1982. His free pen lines and loose watercolours were my dream when I started to carry a sketchbook. Look at Beachy Head on the cover, with its tiny figures; his autobiographical "Artwork"; and his Charing Cross Underground mural in London.
An international organization for people who like to sketch outside. It has local affiliated groups round the world who arrange informal sketching get-togethers. Very friendly and a great way to meet others, of all ages and abilities, who sketch. I have been out with them in Vancouver.
