On one of our day trips, it was apparent that one of our members, John Toovey, was busy drawing the surroundings of the property we were visiting. Asking the obvious questions has led ADFAS to present some of the beautiful results for your consideration!

John and Jacqui Toovey have been ADFAS Members since 2004.
These are some of the sketches he has produced in England since 2016, two on ADFAS outings.
There are also a couple drawn last year in Lucca in Italy, which apparently is a delight to visit.

John has commented that 'Art has always featured in my family. I went briefly to Guildford School of Art and evening classes at St Martin’s in London before training at the Architectural Association as an architect.'
He has always been attracted to buildings and scenes, but many of his sketch books also have things that interest him when on holiday and relaxed ... animals, plants, children ... !
