“The world is what exists and what happens, but we gain enormous insight by talking about it — telling its story — in different ways.”
— Physicist Sean Carroll
Every Tuesday mornings from the middle of May to the end of August, Linda Drewry has been inviting plein air sketchers/painters to join her. She has been doing this for the past 22 years — quite a feat if you ask me! Today was a breezy summer day, full of sunlight and I counted about 15 painters dispersed here and there on the beautiful grounds. The east lighthouse was one of two, each one illuminating its end of the Canal Soulanges, indicating east or west.
I first drew in a value sketch to see where my lights and darks should be and of course I forgot to scan it in tonight… will do so tomorrow. Then I drew on a quarter sheet, light pencil lines, followed by ink lines and finished off with the watercolour paints.
