Wild swimming and art
How could those two be connected? I know it’s hard enough trying to sketch in a stationary kayak let alone while swimming in the sea or open water.
I am attending an event organised by ‘Toes in the water‘ who are open water swimmers who also like art. I am attending as an artist who likes Watersports and will be wearing my 2021 hand drawn boilersuit with images of said sports. I will also be taking my art for fun activity with me and some of my water related art.
Apparently the day will include a dip in the river Itchen – I won’t be doing that part of the day.
In Southampton – fancy attending? I look forward to see how others have linked art and swimming. We have a number of local photographers who use it to record what they see when swimming in the sea so it should be very interesting.<div class='sharedaddy sd-block sd-like jetpack-likes-widget-wrapper jetpack-likes-widget-unloaded' id='like-post-wrapper-123416164-7201-641c58efa272b' data-src='https://widgets.wp.com/likes/#blog_id=123416164&post_id=7201&origin=andyknillart.com&obj_id=123416164-7201-641c58efa272b' data-name='like-post-frame-123416164-7201-641c58efa272b' data-title='Like or Reblog'><h3 class="sd-title">Like this:</h3><div class='likes-widget-placeholder post-likes-widget-placeholder' style='height: 55px;'><span class='button'><span>Like</span></span> <span class="loading">Loading...</span></div><span class='sd-text-color'></span><a class='sd-link-color'></a></div>
