Good morning all!
We had a beautiful day yesterday so we all went over to Belhus Woods.
See HERE for information on the woods.
Over at Painting Friends (here) we've got an "Out and About" group who in the clement weather go off and sketch their local area. I've joined up for it :)
I took my trusty backpack, the frame of which converts to a seat, with my sketching kit and doggy necessities in it.
Then I sat and quickly sketched a few pieces at varying points in the walk.
Its ages since I sketched outside (not counting my back garden!) and I did feel a frisson of nervousness. Hence why the sketches were my quick scribbly style. I shall have to go out more often, until it becomes second nature again.
Thankfully, the weather looks set to co-operate!
I'm wondering too, if many of you go out and about sketching or painting?
Do you take someone (or some dog) with you? Are you part of a sketching group, or are you a solitary soul?
