We were a very productive group sketching day and night!
Below are sketches from the first day:

The road home - 2014 USK Symposium

sketching before the closing ceremony - 2014 USK Symposium

A small sketch while having coffee with new friend before the closing ceremonies.

Sunday boat tour - 2014 USK Symposium

The day after the symposium ended 12 of us decided to rent a boat and take a tour of the bay. We spent 6 hours on the water, swimming ( well i didn't but most of the other enjoyed. I don't like being cold :) ) stopping at beaches and sketching. What a great way to wind down after a busy week.
