Lockdown Sketches

During lockdown I was not able to go out sketching and painting with the two groups I belong to.
One of the groups, Urban Sketchers Cape Town, suggested that we sketched what we saw at home, so I went into my garden in Plumstead and sketched there. 

Garden Sketch 1

I really enjoyed spending time in the garden and observing the plants and insects! I discovered that we have two resident lizards.

Garden Sketch 2

Sketch 3 was done after a visit to the nursery. I put the little plants on the table outside and they looked so good I had to sketch them.

The fourth garden sketch shows the doorway to my outside studio with some of my still lifes inside.

The fifth sketch was done inside. I decided to sketch some of the things on the kitchen dresser.

Sketch 5 – Kitchen Dresser


The sketches are all A5 in size. Happily one of the sketching groups has started up again and I look forward to joining them soon!
