I am doing a course this year that is designed for people like me.  Middle-aged arty/crafty types who need some inspiration.  It is on school hours Thursday and Fridays with an open studio morning on Tuesdays.

The course has 3 basic components:

  1. Life drawing (yikes it’s hard!)
  2. Adobe suite (Photoshop and Illustrator – great to know for any communications job right?)
  3. Studio (drawing, painting and printing  = fun, fun, fun)

I have never done any of this stuff before.  And I am loving it.  Like really truly super loving it.  Even though I nearly cry every week in life drawing (you’ll see why when I get the courage up to share my pretty crap drawings).

So, that’s what I’m doing.  And here’s the very first thing I did there … ink drawing, and white pencil on black paper.

  1. How exciting! Love the feathers, I remember buying a jar of indian ink when I was at school, and playing around with caligraphy pens. Must dig out my old sketchbooks- I used to draw horses and my cat! Enjoy the course, can’t wait to see how it goes!!!
