Sketching with Ray
Ten Club members were invited by Shirley Wilkes to join Ray for a day's sketching and painting at Lympstone.
We met for coffee and a talk from Ray on Ten Tips for Sketching, then set out with these in mind to start with tonal thumbnail drawings of considered compositions using a view finder which he had provided for each of us.
He gave an example demo, then we made our attempts till time called for a fantastic lunch at Shirley’s River House. Afterwards we had another one and a half hours painting to finish our masterpieces, then back to base for tea, cake and critique. Very special day with huge thanks to Ray and Shirley.
