March sketch outing

With the weather still unpredictable, the Swindon sketching group met last Saturday in the Brunel shopping centre which was very crowded.  We decided to try the upper floor, which was a bit quieter, but security banned us from any photography or sketching people, so we had to content ourselves with shop window displays or architecture.  In addition, seating was limited (and no sitting on the floor allowed!) so most of us had to work standing up.

I took the opportunity to practice my figure drawing using the mannequins in the window displays - at least they didn't move.

Luckily, we were able to end the morning with all ten of us seated together for a coffee/lunch break - a chance to exchange ideas and share our work.
