South Norfolk Sketchers and Becketswell

A low turn out for last Sunday's sketching morning - the on and off drizzle didn't help - but the six of us managed to produce some interesting pieces ranging from a small oil painting to an A3 page of pencil sketches of leaf forms.

I used line and wash to sketch the Abbey then painted a small (6" x 8") 15 minute gouache version of the same subject which ended up as one for the bin.

Over coffee in the Garden House Cafe afterwards we discussed where to meet for the November sketching morning. The consensus seemed to be to find a woodland venue to try to capture autumn foliage colours before the leaves finally fall. Long's Wood, which is only a short drive from Wymondham and the surrounding villages, or perhaps Earlham Park might provide the answer.

It's Tuesday today so I am off to tutor by 'Tuesday Group' in a short while. They are tackling a project entitled "Things in Jars" and will be into week two this week. I am looking forward to seeing what progress has been made so far.
