Your Sketchbook Challenge in association with Jakar International Ltd

Last year, Leisure Painter and artist-explorer David Bellamy invited readers to participate in a six-month sketchbook challenge. In each issue, David set a task for readers to complete in a journal-sketchbook and offered practical advice on how to tackle it. Here are the six winning entries.

Alan Bickley Market Square – Stafford, line and wash on Great Art Skizzenbuch 140gsm sketchbook, A4

TASK 1 Sketch subjects around a village, town or a single building Alan Bickley said: ‘Drawing has always been an important aspect of my art. Just getting out and about, mingling with other people and making rapid studies of them chatting to each other, or hurrying to their next destination, both fascinate and inspire me. David’s challenge allowed me to utilise those figures, and include them into another of my favourite subjects, architecture and buildings. What could be better than a cold but sunny Sunday morning, observing a few shoppers at my local market square? I included The Shire Hall, a lovely old courthouse, in the sketch. The courts have long gone and until recently it was the venue of a council-run art gallery. It was important to include this feature, as I had exhibited there in the past.
