Event Description

Meet  in the cafe at 11.00am for a cuppa.

There is architecture, sculptures and people watching to be seen and sketched.  No wet media allowed, but I got over that last week in the National Museum by using a squeezy water brush.  No loose water.

It'll be nice to get back out when the weather has warmed up a bit, but for the moment, out of the cold wind is good.

We were a small select group today.  Sorry that I didn't post this up as PEBV - have to figure that out.

Nice to meet David today.

I ended up in the sculpture gallery, sneaking a flat bottle of water into my pocket to dip from.  I forgot my squeezy brush.

An Italian student cheekily asked me to draw a picture of her, and I did so as she amused me with her chutzpah.  All her friends crowded around, and later the teacher came back to thank me.

The attendents came up to see what I was at, and they studiously ignored the fact that I was using water.  I'm a neat worker when I have to be.

I use that pentel water brush a lot, if you bring along a bristle brush to loosen up your watercolour pans then it is quite easy to manage for small sketches.  David Bellamy uses them for beautiful pencil sketches, he puts a very dark watersoluble pencil "Patch" on a spare piece of paper and lefts darks from that. He paints in all weathers though -
