For the last session with my Thursday Art Group we went to the beautiful Botanical Gardens in Cambridge to draw from our surroundings. We met for a quick lunch before finding places to sketch. My spot was slap, bang in front of the glorious glass houses. I love the architecture of these old buildings and the Cambridge examples are beautifully symmetrical.
How to draw all those straight lines? It takes a lot of looking and a steady hand. I couldn't believe how time flew by and soon I had to find my students. Although their aim was to draw in the glass houses themselves they couldn't find anywhere to sit so I tracked them down by the lake.
I am not sure I did much teaching but it was a wonderful afternoon out sketching.
