Carn Marth – Walk, Talk and Sketch

17 Feb

A glorious sunny day today with a treat to look forward to – a walk on Carn Marth, talking and sketching! Have a look at the gallery and click on any photo for more detail and the caption.
We were given various small tasks to get us going, (I am a complete novice but have long wanted to sketch) one of which was to collect a colour swatch of what we could find. You will see from the photos that the Carn is a little bleak at this time of year but we all found lots of beautiful colour. Both the North and South Coasts can be seen from this high point and, in the morning it was very clear. We had the most delicious lunch of hot Pumpkin Soup, ciabatta, salad and hummus followed by Lemon Drizzle cake and then more walking, talking and sketching.
Many of us then continued to the Village Hall where we made flowers out of old plastic bottles ready for an event next weekend…..
Many thanks to those who made this brilliant day possible.

Here is one of my sketches along with the wall that I was looking at.

      It was fun – and with a lovely group of people, most of whom I hadn’t met before and someone from choir whom I sing with but never have time to talk to, so that was an added bonus! 🙂

      It was, thank you. I was very happy that my ankles let me go! There are so many lovely events to attend here in Cornwall. 🙂
