132. Yesterday at Kew - Poppies (not the Flux Capacitor)

Pilot G-Tec C4 and Caran d'Ache Neocolour II 
in Handbook Travelogue Journal, 5" x 5"

The name of these poppies reminded me of the Back to the Future series and made me laugh!

Yesterday we joined the Urban Sketchers London group at Kew Gardens for what turned out to be a fabulous day. I say "we" because I took my husband who is not an artist but can draw a wee bit. I just pulled out a new sketchbook and gave it to him and he did quite a few nice attempts. Artists are great: always sharing, encouraging and helping each other so my husband was able to fit in and have a good time and we met some great new people too.

As you can imagine, there was more to sketch than can be fit into a day - architecture, plants, trees, birds, water, people, sculpture - so I've already got more sketches for you to view. Watch this space!


  1. That sounds like a great day out and your sketch is lovely!

  2. Love, love your drawings/paintings. Am picking up all sort of great tips on sketching. Thank you!

    1. You're welcome, Susan. Thank you for your encouraging comments.
