Today’s #bandofsketchers prompt was local landmark. We had a walk round the main Hanley Park and also the small park which had this fountain in. The last time I saw it, it was frozen! But tomorrow is the first day of spring, and it was a pleasant and sunny afternoon. Here is my pencil and felt pen depiction of the fountain.
Today’s #bandofsketchers prompt was statue or monument. I’m not sure if Mow Cop, which stands on a ridge above Cheshire is a monument, but its still interesting. It was built as a folly in 1754? and apparently used as a summerhouse. Its owned now by the National Trust. Its open to the public but is accessible by uneven rocky paths. If you are interested it’s worth a visit. The road to it up Mow Cop hill is quite windy and narrow and ascends through the village of Mow Cop, Staffordshire.
Stairs or stairway. This is the top of our stairs with a bookcase full of books and old photo albums. Quick 15 minute sketch for today’s #bandofsketchers prompt. Calligraphy Ink pen and marker pens (some are running out).

#bandofsketchers prompt was corners and as I was in another Zoom, why not draw the corners of the computer? It’s a quick sketch and I didn’t do a good portrait. I also got the date wrong, should read 16.2.21, x
Painted these roses, used metallic and plain paint, different effects depending on how the light hits the painting. I used quite opaque plain paints so they would show up on the black cartridge paper I used. Also it is part of my #bandofsketchers picture, the prompt was valentines day…
Today’s #bandofsketchers prompt was tubes. Couldn’t think of what to do until I thought.. Vacuum cleaner! I do like his eyes! It’s fun having a friendly character to help with the cleaning.
