Visited Hastings and I stopped off and sat in Warrior Square gardens. I enjoyed drawing the surrounding buildings and gardeners with the Church of St Mary Magdelene in the background.
A lady turned up with bird feed and in seconds I tried to capture the seagull frenzy!
After visiting the Jerwood gallery and dropping off my cards, I saw the wonderful Scottish Art exhibition including paintings by Anne Redpath and John Bellany. I’ve been a fan of their work since studying at Edinburgh College of Art. There is also a great Edward Burra exhibition of showing his watercolours inspired by Rye and Hastings.
It was a lovely day so I took a walk into the old town and did some more sketching. St Clements Church looked very picturesque. A friendly passer by stopped to have a chat and it turned out she was from Leiden in the Netherlands!
