An Illustrator's Life For Me! by Lynne Chapman
Graves Park SketchCrawl Pictures
Here are some photos and some of the sketchbook drawings that people did on the last Sheffield SketchCrawl.
We spent the day in Graves Park, where there is a Rare Breeds Centre, so we had fun sketching the animals. Unfortunately, Barbara only remembered to get the camera out later on, when we were drawing by a small lake.
Though on the whole it was a hot, sunny day, in these pics we were sheltering under the trees from the rain.
While we were there, a young girl came along the footpath with her mum. She was keen to see what we were up to. Les (above) lent her a sketchbook and she joined in:
Below are a few drawings by some of the other people who came along to sketch with me. You can see what I came up with on my main blog here and here.
I have been a professional artist all my life. I have illustrated over 30 children's books, created large public murals and now work as a reportage-artist, sketching life as it happens, often alongside academic researchers. In the time between sketching residencies, I create hand-stitched, fine-art textiles, translating my love of mark-making and colour into thread.
I am an Urban Sketchers correspondent and my book Sketching People was published by Search Press and Barrons in 2016.
I give inspirational lectures, and run workshops, both in the UK and abroad, for adults and in schools. I have delivered events in Beijing, Brazil, Spain, the Dominican Republic, Chicago, and Perth, Australia.
