Sketch and Trek Sahara

I spent last week sketching in the Sahara Desert.  The challenge was to trek 100K in five days raising funds for my chosen charities - The British Heart Foundation and The Joe Herrington Memorial Fund.  My sister-in-law also kindly donated to the American Heart Association in my name. We actually walked 112K in sometimes 39 degree heat.  I will be writing a fuller account, with photographs on my trek page.

Funds raised:

BHF -    £7,405

JHMF - £2,245

AHA -   $100

Along the way I sketched as much as I could.  It was a challenging environment to work in and I could only sketch when we stopped for a break or back in the camp. Here are a few of the sketches.

I have several work deadlines during the next twelve months but I will be working on a body of work from the trip alongside other commission and exhibition commitments. I will be participating in Cambridge Open Studios this year so if you would like to see the sketchbook, and work in progress visit me in my studio then.
