Since I’ve started sketching from benches I’ve also started having more meetings on them. I love it in the summer when I can say to someone let’s meet on a bench.
This image is of one such meeting to discuss my input to last years Big Draw. While we chatted I sketched and I’d deliberately positioned us with our backs to the church so we were facing a large window which allowed me to include our meeting from the mirrored effect in front of me.
My AtoZ Blogging Challenge is all about sketches I’ve done this past year and some benches I’ve met along the way. Most but not all of the sketches were done from benches during my walk to work and around town where I shop.
If you’ve enjoyed reading this post why not see what others are doing too during 2015 AtoZ Blogging Challenge.
Not many benches around my neighborhood that I’d sit on unless I were going to wait for a bus. But the right bench in the right place sounds like a nice meeting spot.

Lovely to see you here. I hadn’t realised how lucky I was to have so many pleasant meeting places. Another excellent AtoZ by the way.
Very cool sketch. A mirrored image on paper. I like that. I also like your way of looking at life.

Thanks. It took me a while but I like my way of looking at life too!
Not many benches where I live. If my dad had been an artist, he would have sketched at 7-11. He always scheduled meetings there.

I’d have said there weren’t many benches in Peterborough till I started sketching from them and realised how many there were..
That’s a lovely idea to allow yourself to do a self-portait with your bench views. 🙂

Thanks Cait, I’ve done a few now. It’s becoming a bit of a habit to try to get myself into some of these sketches.. Where there’s a mirror or window on a sunny day I could be in the sketch!
