Sketchbook Friday

I love my Sketchbook Friday’s every two weeks. It gives me some quality time outside in the landscape with my sketchbook in my hand. With a bright blue sky and the sunshine out to play, I went to sketch whatever caught my eye. The weeping beech buds and a seed casing still on the tree…

Moment Sketchers

Out of the door and onto the Ridge today to feel the wind on my face for #momentsketchers I said hello to the Monkey Puzzle trees as I passed by and onto the Trig Point ( the highest point) on the hill to sketch my view. It was a freezing cold 🥶 wind at the…

Lighting our way…

I’m lighting our way into 2020, may it be full of exciting creative adventures. Plan in your creative time, so you have time-out in nature. Creating outside will bring additional benefits to your well- being. I’m looking forward to sharing my adventures with you throughout 2020.

It was an opportunity to join artists Rebecca Finney, Alice Savery (Alice Draws the Line) and the Walking Sketchbook on a Green Sketching Walk, hosted by The…

Sketching the Sense of Place

Last week we ventured out for the Sketching the Sense of Place walk for Kington Walking Festival. Bright sunshine, nature connection and exploring creativity all present as we ambled along our route.

Sketchbook Friday

On my sketchbook Friday I wandered through the garden and into the wood with @beadoodlebug. Along the way we collected nature things which caught our eye. Leaves, plants, whatever had fallen below our feet.  With no plan in mind, we had packed an array of art materials to share along our adventure. Past the pool…

Creative Inspiration

It’s #sketchacrosstheworld weekend and on the first day I ventured into my local landscape. You can still join in today with Day 2. Yesterday was like a dream, the most perfect weather for sketching outdoors, although an interesting blustery wind which was determined to take my sketch board away. I went for a 7 mile…
