I am a bit tardy in blogging recently as my "pay the bills job" has once again been ruling my life, something I am hoping to redress in 2018 and get some more balance (especially since my Rheumatoid Arthritis flares are triggered by stress).
One way I find I can detach myself from the stresses of daily life is to urban sketch. These are a couple updates from the last two Bristol Urban Sketchers meetups.
This one was along the floating harbour in Bristol opposite The Thekla, a floating music venue and Bristol institution.
The December up was in the John Wesley Chapel in the centre of town and their new cafe, a great meeting place, light, airy and some fabulous things to sketch-though I admit I found a comfy seat and sat and sketched right there!
At the end of the sketch we all meet up for drinks/food and share our work.
They are a great group and in the past couple of years I have been taking part I have learnt so much from them.
If you fancy Urban Sketching I thoroughly recommend joining your local group.
