My interest in drawing and sketching has been re-ignited, and it seems to be something I can manage for the moment. I will be going out with a group of fellow sketchers, to different locations, in order to capture the feel of summer into autumn, en plein air. Stately gardens, old industrial sites, rocky foreshore and placid inner harbour will all be visited. Apart from the paraphenalia which needs to be carried, the other important requisites are cafe close by, toilets, and ‘local’ water. A pond, a puddle, a fountain….whatever.
My preference is for buildings in the landscape, but I will endeavour to produce something from each location, which may lead to a larger painting at some later stage.
