Sketching at Steam

A group I belong to, the Great Western Embroiderers, are planning on having an exhibition at the Steam museum in Swindon next year. Maggie and Kath the group founders had managed to get us free entry into the museum for a sketching day yesterday. What a great day it was. I dragged Mark along with me too as I knew his camera would be better for taking some reference photos.

On my first tour round this great little museum I was thinking 'oh help' what is there for inspiration but I think that was the pesimist in me and after a few more walk rounds in which I kept spotting more and more I now have too much inspiration.....

I have lots of pictures that I want to share but blogger is taking an age to upload at the moment so for now here is one of me in sketching pose :)

Mark has already put some on his blog, I just love the one of all the rivets!

Mark has some wonderful photos for you to work from doesn't he? I just love the clocking in board - lots of potential there.
Look forward to seeing what you come up with.
