The lock down has given millions the opportunity to explore their creativity. It has shown that even when we are stripped of great chunks of our lives our creative spirit is what ultimately shines through.
Several joined me on my visit to the farm in Amish Country and produced some beautiful sketches. It was not a formal workshop, but rather a group of people enjoying the creative process together.
Here they are in no particular order:-
MOIRA – Three Amish boys – watercolour
MOIRA – portrait of Amish boy. watercolour on newspaper.
DORA – Amish family working – watercolour
NAN – Amish boys playing – watercolour
JILL – apples – watercolour
JILL – watercolour – flower
NAN – AMISH PLOUGHING – pen and watercolour
CORYN – still life – watercolour
DORA – buggy ride – watercolour
JILL – watercolour
BOB – still life watercolour
MOIRA – Amish boy – watercolour

Thank you everyone for joining in the fun… It is my hope that your sketches will inspire others to pick up brush or pen.
I have had so many messages from people during the lock down saying that the one thing that has helped them to move through it with sanity intact is the creative process🙂
‘The creative process in all its many forms is the key to emotional, physical and spiritual well being”
My next VIRTUAL trip will be to the Brecon Beacons Wales. probably in July – watch this space.
