This was a presentation by Doug to the art group on Tuesday 26 March 2024. Many were impressed with his experiments using AI with the app "Chat GPT" and the artistic works produced from his directions with some surprising results.

At Birmingham's Art Galley and Museum there is currently an excellent exhibition from the Pre Raphaelites. It is called Victorian Radicals.

On Saturday, the Lead Astray Workshop was held at Littleworth. Sheila and Carole had prepared a very informative day for us, demonstrating a wide range of pencil media - showing us the advantages and disadvantages of each variety. Members were invited to use each of the mediums to experiment . It is rare to get an opportunity to handle...

SCOTT WILSON .

In a bustling city, where stories unfold,

An Urban Sketcher, with sketchbook bold.

With pen in hand, and eyes so keen,

They capture the scenes, like none have seen.

On cobblestone streets, they take their stride,

Seeking beauty in every corner, far and wide.

They sketch the buildings, with lines so fine,

Breathing life into paper, like a rhythmic rhyme.

In parks and cafes, their subjects abound,

People laughing, streets alive with sound.

With quick strokes and vibrant hues,

They freeze moments in time, forever to peruse.

Through rainy days and sunny skies,

They unveil the city's secrets with their artful guise.

Every stroke tells a tale, a narrative so clear,

Urban Sketcher's magic, drawing us near.

From towering skyscrapers to quaint little lanes,

They capture the essence, where history remains.

Their sketches unfold, a visual delight,

Whispering stories, from morning till night.

So let's raise a toast to the Urban Sketcher's craft,

Their passion and talent, leaving us daft.

For in their drawings, we find a treasure,

A glimpse into life's urban splendor and measure.

Stoke Urban Sketchers.
