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…

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…
