If sketching were a holiday, Urban Sketching would be like like wild camping.

Today, thanks to lockdown I’ve ‘upgraded’ to the 5 star luxury of painting at home. No moving targets, no changing light, warm, comfortable… yet uncomfortably decadent.

Q: How long does it take an octogenarian to get the vaccine?

A: As long as it takes to do 2 sketches!

Vaccination day at Brighton Racecourse.

Walking while sketching is hard enough when surrounded by sea walls.

But you know you’re addicted if you do it on a cliff edge.

Do not try this! Stay safe. Keep moving. Find sanity where you can.

First try – fairly stable under-cliff to Ovingdean
Second try – a bit wobbly towards Brighton
Third try – more wobble than a weeble…
