|Lunchtime show & tell|
We decided to start big, drawing at Colchester's old water tower, locally called Jumbo, and the first meeting was last Sunday. It was a lovely sunny day, albeit cold in the shade, and we had a great turn out.
We spent the first part of the day sketching around Jumbo and the Mercury Theatre, then after a lunch break moved onto the grounds of the Colchester Art Centre. It was a lovely day and everyone seemed enthusiastic about sketching again soon.
Below are my sketches (photos from the day are here). I'd love to hear what you think in a comment below. Thanks.

|I stopped for a cuppa, which came in a glass cup & had to be sketched.|
