Life drawing classes drew to an end this week, I shall miss them. I feel I have really benefitted from the discipline, there is no place to hide when life drawing – everybody knows what a person looks like so it is easy to spot mistakes. Now with my quilt finished I am at a loose end sewing wise and have become drawn to the work of Natalie Chanin both the ethos and the style, so I am experimenting with the technique……….I just wonder if I have the hutzpah to swish around rural Suffolk in these ornate and marvellous creations – well I am now of the age when I can put two fingers up to everyone so maybe I just will! Mind you it will probably take at least a year as they are very labour intensive to sew.
All this sewing has taken time from drawing but still keeping up the project, so here are this weeks offerings, very heavy on the day lily as they are such beautiful elegant plants.
