It was week two of the art class, it was a bit scary as we had to do some sketching, copying pictures to scale, or in my case 'sort of' to scale. I chose what I thought would be an easy picture, a straight street scene... a little later the art tutor told me that such a scene was the hardest to do! But I had a bash, and hadn't gone that far wrong. I got better, not by much. Then we did something called blocking, I'm sure that with practise I'll get better. Which is what I intend to do, picked up a few supplies on the way home, and a small acrylic pad, which I can use for practise. We had a few more people turn up for the course this week, so now we have a full quota. We have a husband and wife who are a bit of a comedy duo, they had us in stitches at times. It was a nice relaxed atmosphere, and we had some music at our request, well with us all concentrating it was rather quiet!
I am in for a busy time, we got warned today that we will have homework. Next week is also busy, I have a photo walk round Liverpool, and a tour round the Albert Dock, then counselling and Art Therapy, and back to art class - phew.
All the craft stuff has been stored for the art duration. Unless I need a distraction. I've lined up my next painting, I was going to do another beach scene, and did start it but kept going wrong, I was demanding too much of myself. I've chosen a landscape instead, that involves some blocking, so it will be good practice.
I hope this stormy weather has blown through, at least it saved me watering garden.
