Only just realised that whilst I posted these on my social media sites I had forgotten to update my blog-so here is a catch up.
I love taking part in Free Art Friday and Art Abandonment as well as Bristol Rocks and Sidmouth Smilestones. Basically make art and leave it for someone to find, easy.
This was a small watercolour I sketched whilst at a hospital appointment recently. You sit there, often for a couple hours so I tend to sketch as it keeps me off my phone and my mind occupied. I then usually leave the sketches (unless they are my urban sketches which tend to be in a proper sketchbook) for someone to find, pass on or leave for someone else.
I also tend to have some posca pens and a small clear nail varnish with me in my small travel kit. These come in really handy if I spot any pebbles/rocks that I can draw on and leave for others to find. The nail varnish providing a clear protective lacquer.
I never really know what I am going to draw, it depends on the shape of the stone but I tend to have half a dozen "go to" designs that tend to work on various shapes.
I usually leave contact details of the groups mentioned above (usually via Facebook/groups) and people can register a find online and also post a picture if they then move the stones to a new location and abandon them for another to find.
I think it is a lovely idea and a great way to spread a smile.
Do you do anything like this, I would love to hear what you do
