My studio and garden

May Challenge
blog imageblog image

During the month of May I have been taking part in the May Challenge. This means making an urban sketch every day. My sketches over the month have included trips to the Zoology and Classical Archaeology Museums, parts of Cambridge and even some skecthes when I spent a weekend in Brighton.

The two above are of my garden and my studio, both of which you can see if you visit during Cambridge Open Studios in July.

Urban Sketchers at Novi

3rd Anniversary Exhibition
blog imageblog image

To celebrate the third anniversary of the Cambridge Urban Sketchers group, our leaders have organised an exhibition at Novi in Regent Street, Cambridge.

There will be around 25 sketches in all kinds of styles of various places we have visited over the past 3 years. All sketches will be mounted and framed and for sale. The Private View takes place on 22 May between 6 and 9pm. Come along and meet us and find out more about what we do.

You can find out where and when the next meetings will be if you want to come and sketch with us.

May Drawing challenge

A drawing every day of May
blog imageblog image

It's Day 9 of the drawing challenge and I am delighted to say I haven't missed a day!

Of course there are rules, otherwise it would be easy but it means getting out there to draw even though you might be in a place surrounded by people who are all too aware of what you are doing.

I've included two of my sketches: one is the beautiful wisteria in my front garden that is our pride and joy, lovingly pruned and cajoled twice a year by my husband and the second is the glorious totem pole drawn during a trip to the Museum of Anthropology and Archaeology on Downing Street, Cambridge.

The sketches are put on the Facebook USK Urban sketchers' site every night so that is a great incentive to make sure I draw every day.

Cambridge Urban Sketchers will be celebrating their third anniversary this year and will be holding an exhibition at Novi in Regents Street, Cambridge between 25 May - 24 June. If you are in the area, pop in for a coffee or cocktail and view the sketches.
