Lewes Artwave

August 28th, 2012

I’m taking part in the Lewes Artwave again this year. Enjoyed the first weekend. Lovely to meet so many visitors and demonstrate printing techniques. Feel free to visit the Pastorale Studios. There’s also tea and cake in the courtyard at the Buttercup Cafe.

London Olympics

August 10th, 2012

It’s been an amazing couple of weeks. I knew the Olympics would be good but the whole nation’s expectations have been surpassed by the success of the brilliant team GB. I applied for tickets (as most of the nation) and managed to get volleyball and women’s football. Took my sketch book to Earls Court and did a few sketches of the USA team v Dominican Republic and Italy v S Korea volleyball semi finals. Great atmosphere! Many supporters, colourful flags and screens. Great to draw. US are going to be difficult to beat on Saturday.

Was hoping to get more tickets whilst in London but no joy so headed to Hyde Park to soak up the Olympic atmosphere. So glad we did. Beautiful day and parked in front of the large screens, watched sport and sketched the spectators.

Sat amongst dutch supporters to see the Netherlands v New Zealand women’s hockey semi. Great match and much jubilation when they won on penalties. Then dressage.

Not a sport I normally watch but completely glued to the screen and another gold for GB! 

In this heat it was time for an icecream (despite the queue).

Table tennis…

Will enjoy the final weekend and  look forward to the paralympics.

Frisbee

August 6th, 2012

I was passing the local sports ground and stopped to sketch the players in a frisbee tournament.  Not an Olympic sport (yet!) but fun to watch.
