Its been as previous mentioned that I was invited a little over 12 months ago the take up the pencil and start sketching by one of our local artists. Peter John Young is slightly eccentric with a kind and outgoing personality also inclined to be a little verbose with an eclectic humour which I enjoy.
A fellow local artist, John Bryant who past away last year started the sketch club however although I knew David, I never sketched with him.
This Tuesday we sketched from our own homes via the App Zoom, an interface program that allows all sketchers to socialise while working on their sketch.
This is of course a necessary alternative due to the Corona Virus restrictions, even here in Trentham.
Peter assigned us a project this Tuesday that could be anything from our pantry. I decided on a sectional view of our pantry which is a butler's pantry style where we store goods, wash up (it has two sinks) and make our tea and coffee. The arrangement allows Sue to cook in the kitchen and me (the Butler) to transport her meet to the pantry to clean up!!!!!!!! Gee, she's a great cook but really messy!
So back to the subject in hand.
My sketch or sketches as I did two, were of a section of the pantry and then our Nespresso machine with a cup and saucer used for our espresso coffee.
I've added a photo of the scene I sketched. I fine the photo helps to reference detail when required.
So there you go - My Tuesday Urban Sketch Club in Trentham report until next Tuesday.
