Sometimes golf is a four letter word in our house. As much as I like to watch it on tv, sometimes a four letter word springs to mind when it is on for hours, kind of overkill. Well at the moment the men's Seniors Open is a 10 min walk from our house. It is at the Royal Birkdale Golf Club.
For the sketch I dodged underneath the security ropes, before there were any golfers on the 18th hole, to paint this. A large security lady said you shouldn't be here! Gulp. Well she said I'll let you know if anyone comes. This was done for the Ladies Open a couple of years ago. It is on khadi paper.
On Monday I went to the pro am, which was free! Yes I said FREE. Sketch book in my little rucksack I went to the practice ground to sketch, and my hubs went off to do his marshalling stint.
You never know what you might find to sketch, so I usually have a small set in my bag.
All day a light aircraft has been circling every 5 mins overhead for tv coverage, and it's been getting on my nerves, so am off out tomorrow.
I may go on the last day, yes actually pay, I love the atmosphere.
I wish you all a wonderful weekend and thank you for looking at my blog.
