214 entry

Am doing the Clarendon Way walk in June. Did 20.5m miles on Saturday and to help my legs I did a little walk, yesterday, along Lady's Mile. As my treat I stopped near home and did this travel sketch of silver birch trees - the leaves dapple in the sunshine!

About Me

My photo
Art has always been an integral part of my life. At the age of 50 I was able to complete a long awaited foundation course and HNC/HND. From this experience I have developed my love of pastel and watercolour. Rubens has always inspired me with his fluidity of movement; Degas and Lautrec I admire with their rough marks and blends of colour,their freshness of approach. I feel I have been given a talent for a reason and gradually the purpose shall unfold... sarah.orchard54@hotmail.co.uk Note: Images are Copyright Sarah Orchard © 2009
