Orchid Paridise Mark 2 - Dec 2017

A second visit to Orchid Paradise at Burnham Nurseries was another success for our Sketching Group which is going from strength to strength


Orchid Paradise - 21Nov 2017

Another excellent Sketching Day this time at the Burnham Nurseries, Newton Abbot 

With so many choices of size,shape and colours it was difficult to decide where to start

A very enjoyable day was had not only sketching but increasing our knowledge of these exotic plants, and the lunch was very nice

Looking forward to our next day out, why not join us




Sketching at Dawlish Warren on Tuesday 12th September 2017


Report by Deirdre Stewart


The day dawned bright and sunny despite a forecast which mentioned showers, and apart from a light shower at 11am, stayed dry for us. After we had met up in the carpark in Dawlish Warren, we went off in all directions to sketch the dunes, plants, beach, headland, fun fair, people and the amazing stormy clouds.


We gathered together again at 12.15 at the Boathouse for a chat and tea and coffee and to compare notes on what we had been sketching which was very interesting. We then split up again to find a place to eat our sandwiches and to do some final sketches.


It was a lovely day, we were lucky with the weather, and I would like to say a big thank you to the people who supported me: Virginia, Gill, Eric, Jacquie, Kathie and Loveday. It was good fun and I hope to arrange an indoor sketching morning or afternoon in November.
