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
