For the past six weeks to help continued to draw on a regular basis before starting The Practise of Painting I have been attending a local drawing group who walk around and draw local beauty spots. This time it was the Ifield Mill Pond in Crawley, which is rich in history and has been recently been renovated.
I particularly enjoyed this group as it focused on natural surroundings which is not a subject I automatically deviated towards during drawing 1. It has been so nice to just sketch, focusing on improving my pencil technique and practise observational skills. Additionally got refreshed on making a sketch book from sugar paper. The drawings which are everything from 2 or 5 minute sketches (timed) and further developed sketches will be exhibited on the 17th September at The Ifield Mill.
