Field Sketching through Art

One of our members kindly sent through a link to the Geological Society web page article about field sketching.

“I think it would be something for visitors to the website to have a look at, especially as drawing, sketching and artwork are activities everyone could have a go at during lockdown”

Many people will appreciate the beauty of the landscape first hand and many may take photographs but there is little that brings a scenary or memory to life than a sketch or artwork.

This article “FIELD SKETCHING THROUGH ART: AN AID TO OBJECTIVITY”  is a great reminder – or prompt – as to how art can enhance your memory of a location as well as bring calm and happiness.

Why don’t you take advantage of time in the open and take a sketchpad, easel & paints or create some art then submit a picture to us with where it is and how you created the art?
