SKETCHING AT ASHLETT CREEK
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.

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!!
