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!
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
