Event Description

Have you a sketchbook,that looks neglected?

With the great feeling of getting paint on canvas, we sometimes forget how important  drawing is, in gathering information, ideas, and compositions. It improves hand-eye co-ordination, which can only enrich our painting skills and are beautiful creations in themselves.

This seven day "sketchout", will help us to give a little attention to that "neglected sketchbook", and integrate it again into our " daily creative exercises".

At least one sketch a day En Plein Air.... There are no restrictions as ANY MEDIUM can be used to draw/sketch, just enjoy the process....

Last day of our Drawing a day, for seven days project. Thanks to everyone who has taken part in this, and even if you only had a chance to get one sketch done, it was well worth the effort!

Personally, I have introduced myself back to the joys of sketching.. It can take as long as you like, you can take a sketchbook and pencil anywhere, and not draw attention to yourself. It's a handy tool to get your ideas flowing, or simply to keep your hand/ eye co-ordination going. Note to self...must keep sketching!!

Day three tomorrow of our Sketch-out. How's everyone getting on? Let us know what you sketched, or where you sketched, so we can have a "natter"!

I think doing a sketch a day is a great idea. Takes me back to the basics. Have started with a ink and wash study of home.

Maybe a pencil tomorrow
