Here are a few of the better sketches that I did during october, for the challenge I set myself, randomly, of doing the Sketch a day for a year. I Hope that this will improve my drawing skills and just keep me in the habit of making things and sketching .
I also hope to post at least once a month on here, of my best ones, but I will be posting everyday ( most of the time) on instagram. It is a good motovational tool to help me complete my sketch a day!
If you would like to follow me on there to see everydays attempts, just search alisonsloggett!
Thanks for looking!
If anyone is in the Stroud area around the 8th of March and beyond, you should go see this show, free entry and loads of examples of the different printmaking techniques out there.
There is more to prints than the inkjet 😉
Thanks for looking!
Had a great opportunity recently to take part with some other lovely exhibitors from the Bristol area in a fair at Westonbirt Arboretum , in the lovely Oak Hall there, we ( me and Elaine Knight on our table) had our stall selling prints and framed work and when the sunshine came out so did the people to buy things!
I hope to soon put some of the Prints and Photos I was selling here, on my etsy shop!
i have said it out loud, so I shall have to do it now!

I am taking part in an Art car boot sale , at Old Sodbury near Bristol, on the 19th of July from 10.30.
It will be the same set up as a normal car boot, but with all the stall holders being artists and sellers of art, and the emphasis being on grabbing a bargain!
So if you are in the area come along and have a rummage through our boots!
Here are a few more of my favourite photos from winter trip to Westonbirt arboretum, which I shall be working from shortly!

my most recent trip to the arboretum was on a lovely sunny day just after Christmas, whilst there I was trying to capture the trees from perspectives I hadn’t before, here is one of the better ones
