Morning all, and another What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday thanks to the lovely Julia the Queen of desks (full details are on her blog here).  This was my desk last night it has stuff on it!!!  Some of you may know I have been a member of Bristol Urban Sketchers for many years and we used to have monthly live sketches as a group in various locations around the city.  Over lockdown this moved to Zoom, which was great as we could still see each other and chat and we could sketch all over the globe!  But, it was lovely on Saturday to be able to do a physical sketch crawl, this time at Bristol Beacon.  Its a fantastic airy space and lots of interest outside and seats too so it was a great place to be.

I haven't had time to post the photo of my sketches on the urban sketchers group or indeed clear out my travel sketch kit until tonight, hence its all over my desk!  Also I have new stash!  Well, one of my fineliners ran out whilst sketching and since CASS Art is about 10 mins walk away from where we were sketching it seemed fate to pop up!  They didnt have the type I was looking for BUT they did have a special offer of a set of 5 pens and a free sketch book so it seemed like fate!  I also bought some more watercolour postcards as they are a great item to take with me for art abandonment when I am out and about, also I have recently borrowed a book on technique exercises for watercolour from the library so I thought I could use these as my testing pages.

My "Man Bites Dog" cards this week are 'Brave Angel Wanted Thousands', well I think we can all think of thousands of brave angels at the moment!

So, What's on Your Workdesk this Wednesday?

Happy crafting
