This venue was arranged by Helen. Report by Di
September sketching at Hythe Memorial Park was beautiful (except for the noisy saw). Twelve of us were there and it was so lovely to see Jean again after more than a year. A perfect location picked by Helen. The Lord Nelson pub was a great place for a drink and a chat afterwards.

And it was high tide!

Sketching at the Old Mill at Holbury

Our Adventurous artists were spoilt for choice at the Old Mill Inn at Holbury on 11th August. Lorna, Janet, David, Helen and Di found the mill stream in the wooded area. The sunlight through the trees and on the water was beautiful. Harry made a sketch of the inn and the others sketched the garden. It was another memorable afternoon.

Report by DI:-

Some members of the Adventurous Artists Sketching Group have been meeting online since last November.  Meetings outdoors resumed in June this year and in July Ashlett Creek was a perfect location for sketching on a warm sunny day.  Zoom regulars Ali, Gail, Pam K, Helen, Pam R, Di, Catherine, Muriel, Betty and Tony, Harry, Lorna, Janet, Pat G and Catherine. Happily Muriel was walking again and Gail was accompanied by her sister Sue. 

Most of us settled opposite the tide mill only to discover that the proportions of the buildings and the windows could be challenging to draw - many were individually-sized and placed asymmetrically. Drawing boats was a lot easier. Our drink and a chat outside the Jolly Sailor pub rounded off the afternoon perfectly.


PS by Betty

 We are all very grateful to DI as she has kept us going with Zoom sessions which have been inspirational and encouraging. We saw how we were each tackling our own projects and were inspired and encouraged to try new ones. Gentle criticism from the other members was very helpful  and hopefully we will continue with the Zoom meetings at any time if we cannot have the normal ones.  Above all it kept us together socially. The Zoom system is very easy to use -just click on the link Di sends and open. So a BIG THANK YOU Di!!
