Nearly February 2016....where is time going?
But I do post alot on my FB page and the France Painting Holiday page too
This I did for United by Art FB page as a challenge and received 4th place out of 50+ entries which I have to say I was chuffed with. Good start to the new year!
No 2 New Years resolution was to get more into sketching as I would love to own a "beautiful" sketch book. So as a christmas present to myself I signed onto two online sketching courses with Craftsy and have found them to be one of the best things I have done. These are the two that I have gone for.
Firstly, Travel Sketching in Mixed Media with Mark Taro Holmes, as he is a fantastic sketcher and one of the founders of Urban Sketching I believe and Travel Sketching really covers the type that I want to be doing. He also has a lovely relaxed and natural way of teaching
And then Perspective Sketchers with Stephanie Bower as again she is a stunning sketcher, architecture being her "thing" and her lessons in really seeing what you are looking at are great.
This is pretty much my tool kit when I go out. Dont normally need more other than kitchen roll and extra water maybe in case my water reservoir brush runs out. Which incidentally has never happened!
|Plein air kit!|
So since joining I have done more than I normally do at this time of year. The trick will be to keep going on a regular basis as practice makes perfect! And I am longing for the weather to improve so that I can go out and do more plein air. Here are a few from last week!
