SKETCHING AT HOME IN DECEMBER
Our sketching group had to hastily re-locate when the King Rufus at Eling was not expecting their visit. I had mistakenly made arrangements with the pub of the same name (but different phone number) at Chandlers Ford. So six of us came to be comfortably seated in a living room which was a lot warmer than the air outside. The subject of most of the sketches was a large anthurium plant with heart-shaped leaves and deep pink flower bracts. Everyone rose to the challenge and the resulting sketches were beautiful.
Most of us might not usually sit at home and sketch, but it is well worth the effort in order to test our drawing skills on a different subject.
