Sometimes we sketch and walk around a quaint French village and sketch vignettes. Maybe a door way or doorknob. It may be a window and curtain that catches our eye. Or even an old street stall or newspaper stand. Anything that appeals really. Get in touch if you’d like to book a Workshop

That's it for this week. Happy Sketching till next time. Always happy to hear what you’re up to.
