Sometimes you need a treat

Work is so rubbish and on such a low wage (I will not bore you - but I do moan more on my other blog!) that I am glad I saved some money last year to treat myself this year.
My trip to NY is temporarily on hold but another treat is a three part course with Janet Crowther at Urchfont. Part 1 was last weekend. This included a short trip to Salisbury Museum to 'record texture'. Well - was I worried, frightened, petrified - YES - I can't draw and recording texture?? HOW???!! My texture bits are not brilliant and there are not many of them.

However now I want to say a big global Thank you to Janet! - I CAN DRAW!! As part of the visit we also needed to find an object that we liked. I was struck by an Eskimo bone fishing spear. My quick sketch was ok..... then later back at college I redrew it from my sketch and memory...... - NOT BAD?? Since then I have been back to the museum to take a photo of the said item.... A little out of proportion and not quite the right item for the course,but SEE - I CAN DRAW!!
I have also started sketching some of the Keys which I loved but did not have time during the first trip!
