Ideal for sketching the places we go to and obviously a sketch of Cambridge was a must. I know, not perfect by any means, but an indication of the place at least. I am in awe of anyone who could sketch this building in detail, it's full of it by the bucket load!
being a postcard it only measures 6" x 4" (that's 15.2 x 10.2cm in foreign money!) so is nice and quick to draw and colour in. In this case I've waited for it to dry completely and then covered it with Modge Podge as a sealer.....(using watercolours can have a down side to it, once wet...disasters!)
Now here's the thing. I know there are loads of website/blogs where people Swap Postcards, with some fully subscribed etc. So I'm thinking about an
Ann's Postcard Giveaway
every so often - No Swaps, just a postcard winging its way to a willing recipient. And let me say here and now they will only be sketches, no Fine Art, I want to enjoy sketching and/or painting them without added pressure!
If anyone would like to receive this postcard just leave me a comment on this blog post and I'll put your name in a hat. I'll draw a name out on Thursday evening (21st March)-
Let you all know the name drawn out on this blog and then the lucky person can email me on: firstname.lastname@example.org their address details. Oh, and this is Open to all - in other words the UK and beyond.
I'll see how this one goes and if it is successful then I'll make a point of doing these every now and again. But don't forget
You need to be In it
