Well, a whole month goes by. I thought once my new hours at work arrived (4 hours less every week) I'd have time to pop in and leave a few pics of what I'd been up to. Easter put paid to much crafty work as my lovely neice Mimsie stayed in the spare room (my craft area!). However I did manage a few bits and bobs.
My first has to be my work of art. I was pretty good at art at school apart from any form of painting. For some reason I could not get the colours right. Do remember drawing a boat in a heavy swell and just used white to emphasise the spray from the waves. My art teacher kept that to one side I noticed when I left the room. Anyway, last week I was admiring the work of my son-in-law - who is an artist. I was bemoaning the lack of ability with colour, even struggle with my Promarkers!
John said he could show me how to recreate a painting he has just finished and before I knew it, he had both easils set up and me and my sister sat and had an art lesson! A few hours later . . .
I was thrilled that John was able to help me acheive this. He has promised me a lesson in watercolour next time (this was acrylics)
