Sunday July 9th
A great morning out with the South Norfolk Sketchers. Only a small group of us this time sketching and painting at Mulbarton which is a lovely rural village with a very large common, cottages, a duck pond and is home to Blakeys Bus Cafe. The idea was to meet up in the cafe after sketching for a 'show and tell' get together. Guess what. It was closed.
Undeterred, we cruised just a couple of miles down the road to the Bird in Hand at Wreningham where we were able to sit in the garden in the warm sunshine getting suitably refreshed while sharing the morning's experiences.
I tried out my new, mini size pochade box for the first time which I really fell in love with. Despite having a lousy selection of Atelier acrylic colours and some old water colour brushes I enjoyed trying to capture the open fields of ripening wheat which can be found behind the church.
Can't wait till the next South Norfolk Sketchers outing in August 13th when the plan is to record the architecture, woodland and countryside at Ketteringham Hall. Perhaps I'll see you there?
