Here is some news of another sketching group and an account of the visit to Dibden with photographs - all by Di. It sounds as if it was a good morning despite the cold with a lovely view to sketch in warmth and comfort!
I went along to the New Year meeting of the Southampton Urban Sketchers Group in St. Michael’s Church. There were over 20 people there. I was interested to find that the format was very similar to our Adventurous Artists group: an hour and a quarter sketching in small sketchbooks and an hour in the Tudor House Cafe afterwards. There were people of all ages there and those to whom I spoke were most enthusiastic.
Adventurous Artists Sketching Group
Four of us were at Dibden Golf Centre on Friday. We were made very welcome in the clubhouse and had a warm room and a fabulous view to sketch . Here are photos of the view, Harry & Olive Yearsley (Olive did not sketch, she accompanied Harry), Helen Bartlett (formerly Davies) and Muriel Hiscott. Harry sketched in pencil, Helen in watercolour, Muriel in Graphtint pencils (not shown) and I sketched in ink, Inktense and lead pencils.
