Another week and now it is the end of October.  Where does the time go - well I know it goes to a lot of yoga classes as I continue to attend all of my teacher training classes - despite the voices in my head that say I am too old.  I am in week 3 of Dion Dior's Watercolour Pencil class - this week I managed to draw/colour/paint this rose.

Another exercise from my drawing class.  We were asked to do portraits from photocopies that my instructor brought to class.  In addition we were asked to use oil pastels.  Now you have to know that I am not a fan of oil pastels so I decided to use water soluble crayons instead.  We were also using German Expressionism as a style reference - it was a challenge!

In my drawing class last week we were working with ink and sumi brushes.   The excellent instructor often brings in photocopies of things she has found on-line for us to use as reference/copy - this is a copy of one of those pictures.  I love drawing with ink and skewer but have little experience with the sumi brushes.

Another piece done while working through Dion Dior's Watercolour Pencil course - just an amazing course with a really great, talented, generous instructor.

I am in Dion's Watercolour Pencil course and this week worked on colour temperatures.  These are my cool and warm strawberries.
