Waiting to watch the world go by #AtoZChallenge

The benches I’ve had to wait for.

[STOP PRESS: The bench I sketched this featured image from wasn’t there today.. It’s been completely removed and no replacement bench put there. There was nothing wrong with the previous one which I had to go in early to get to sit from it… I don’t know what to say..]

I’ve mentioned in some of my earlier blogs this month that some benches in Peterborough are very sought after. These tend to be where they’re the only one in that location or they’re near something specific like the chippy.

I’ve already included some of the most sought after locations in other posts (see I and F) but here’s another few that I’ve had to wait to sketch from as each time I passed them by they were occupied. These are three of five that are close together and always occupied. One of which I’ve still not managed to sketch from yet.

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.

      If you can draw a circle, triangle, square and put one next to another you can learn to draw. It’s not about drawing the buildings and people and objects that we name, it’s about seeing the lines and colours that make the scene.
      I love sitting at airshows to edit my novels, perhaps that’s where I’m going wrong, I don’t go to enough airshows. 🙂
