The Eastbourne Group go to Great Dixter - Autumn 2011
|On a slot in a week of dreadful weather - Wednesday 7th September 2011, the Eastbourne Group of Artists enjoyed a sketching outing to the wonderful gardens of Great Dixter at Northiam, Kent.
We could not help to be inspired by the colour, texture, shapes and architectural planting of the garden and the great architecture of the house.
It was a valuable opportunity for members of the group to share their working practice and methods and share a delicious picnic at the same time.
Simon Smith - artist, photographer and musician joined the group for the trip as the official photographer for the day.
Art work developed as a result of the day's sketching will feature in forthcoming group exhibitions.
This is the first of many such sketching outings that the group plan throughout 2012. Photographs from the day can be found on the group's Facebook page.
