100 Days of Social Distancing
During the first 2020 lockdown we were all working away from our studios having had to leave and work from home. I decided that this was not going to affect my art and that I was going to find an urban sketching voice and style. I started to develop my style by sketching out and about, until the government stopped us from hanging about outside. I then had to work from photos taken on out daily walks. These grew into a large body of traditional and iPad sketches.
I kept sharing these on social media and was asked by a number of people to put these into a book as a historical reference of what happened in a really strange time. The result was the '100 Days of Social Distancing' book.
The '100 Days of Social Distancing' book went on sale fro £12 and sold very well in the run up to Christmas. It contains 130 sketches and accompanying notes and thoughts.
Since the publication I have been continuing my local sketching journey with a view to a second volume of sketches.
These are currently under way and I am excited to be able to compile these and hopefully add to the historical record of the effects of Covid on the locality.
To get your copy of Volume 1 contact me directly and I will arrange a copy for you at £12 plus P&P
