What a night!
Artist, teacher and gallery owner, Lesley Charnock regaled us with her trials and tribulations about using a sketch book and how she had to overcome her own reticence about using one in public when she spent a two month sabbatical at the Cite in Paris.
From just that little sketch book, came some wondrous work - and that was the message Lesley wanted to impart - the absolute importance of sketching daily. Take your sketch book with you wherever you go. Sketch anything and everything and never mind what it looks like. It's your practice tool and the high road to becoming a really good artist.
Thank you Lesley - it really was a great night!
