The Sketchacrosstheworld Project came about through wanting to encourage those who have not sketched before, or not picked up a pencil for a while or mostly sketch indoors, for a weekend in May to try venturing outside to sketch and connect with nature. A chance to dip your toe in the creative water.
In need of some inspiration? Take a wander over to my blog and see if my creative adventures inspire you. You could capture the essence of where you are, through drawing shapes, lines and adding colour you are drawn to, or painting with plants you find around you. Go for a walk and collect nature’s treasures to create LandArt or wander up on a hill to paint with the wind. Whatever you chose to have a go with, it might be your first attempt. I’ve experienced those moments, the fear of a blank page, followed by complete elation with your final creation. Exploring creativity outdoors introduces an inspiring, free flowing experience.
The richness I achieve comes from nature, the source of my inspiration.Claude Monet

To look, to see, to understand, to capture – however imperfectly – is to be part of the land in a way like no other.Jan Blencowe – Art-quotes.com
