Painting classes

Painting classes started yesterday afternoon. A few new faces and a number of old ones! Perhaps I should rephrase that!! As it was the first class of term Penny, our teacher broke us in gently with "feely bags". She puts things in bags and we have to try and draw them from touch. Then we open the bag and do another drawing. An interesting exercise. I had a pig in a purple dress carrying a red fan.
Have just finished an ATC for the Scribble talk website exchange. It is the third colour pencil work I have done. I really like the medium and also working at this small scale.
I also like doing still life subjects. The tulips were the first colour pencil work and is about 6" square. The ATC is 2.5" by 3.5".
