Quite pleased with these. On Sunday I took part in what should have been a drawing workshop, working from life outside, at the Barnes Wetlands Centre. We stayed in, worked from photos and we're supposed to be using watercolour, which I'm rubbish at. I did try, and did these drawings from the tutor's photos while waiting for things to dry

Had an email tonight from the tutor - the Wetlands Trust events organiser has asked if she can use my image(s) to promote future art workshops. Said yes, provided they are acknowledged to me.

Very nice FB, I particularly like the way you've done the Swan. It must be gratifying to get such positive response form the Wetlands people.

I'm always full of admiration for artistic talent, because I have none. Craft I can do, art, no Crying or Very sad

You sound like me, CH. I always think I'm a craftsperson not an artisti.
Lovely drawings, fb

They're beautiful Freebird.
It is so irritating when something is not as it is advertised. Presumably if it had been advertised as a watercolour workshop you wouldn't have gone along. I think a lot of people teach / tutor without ever putting themselves in the shoes of the learners. Just because someone is good at something it doesn't necessarily follow that they can teach others.

I particularly like the swan too; the detailed drawing around the beak contrasting with the looser drawing elsewhere

The richer we have become materially, the poorer we have become morally and spiritually. We have learned to fly in the air like birds and swim in the sea like fish, but we have not learned the simple art of living together as brothers and sisters.
