For many years we struggled with flying kites. Drones make more sense…

Catching crabs and letting them go is a winner with kids. All you need is a special net, a bucket with sea water, a stone, some bait (Budgens ham worked magic today), a rope… and a pier.

Ever wanted to find yourself somewhere far away, in a new unexplored country and with a sketch book? This is how I felt when my children had shown me Geoguessr ( http://geoguessr.com/ ) game this winter.

The game places you at a random spot within Google Street View area. The purpose is to find where you are. You are usually free to wander up and down the streets or roads, to look around. This planet is truly beautiful, even along the roads.

So I devised a game of my own: Why not find something worth sketching in that random part of the world? On the picture below are two views near Brisbane and one (on the right) – somewhere else, maybe in Brazil?brisbanebraz

Running low on my sketchbook pages, I’ve decided to make my own little book. With a thick thread I’ve sewn together about 17 pages (folded in two) of random card and paper. Then added a ribbon. It looks very handmade.

For a while I felt like doing more sketching but what should I sketch? I am so busy with running the shop and doing housework that I don’t usually have time to wander around with a sketch book. Plus it rains a lot in Wales. When we travel everybody are trying to see as much as possible and again there is no chance to slow down and do plein air art.

Recently Kids have shown me the Geoguessr game. I am really amazed at how beautiful our planet is. Even along the roads. I’ve decided to try an adventure: to sketch something at that random place on Earth where the game makes me to “materialise”. As I don’t copy any images slavishly there shouldn’t be a copyright issue. I’ve been luckily to find myself among golden fields, under cumulus clouds, with hills and mountains on the horizon. So I did a quick acrylic pens, pencils, ink and graphite sketch. I am looking forward doing it again somewhere else!
