We were out painting in Blandford Forum with Broadstone Art Society this morning, it was lovely down by the river but I decided to do some urban sketching in the town first. Had an interesting chat with a sculptor who stopped to look at my sketch. It’s fascinating to meet people while out painting.

Today’s tutor at PEDAS was Tony Paul who showed us his method of drawing a self portrait. Tony uses a grid system to get an accurate likeness, not a method I have used before but it certainly helped me to create a portrait I am happy with. There was som great work created by members as you can see in the photos.

I fancied a little en plein air painting this morning as the forecast was good so I visited Knowlton Church just north of Wimborne here in Dorset. The sun shone but the wind was very cold so my picture ended up being a bit rushed. I took lots of photos so I may do another one in the studio.
