My theme has been tulips this week (and last week), tulipomania has struck the depths of Suffolk. I only have one clump of tulips in the garden and I sacrificed them all for the sake of Art. I have not been finding the the time to do ‘botanicals’ what with ‘a drawing a day’ and the rest of life intervening so this week I combined them with my series of tulip drawings. I am also happy that life drawing classes have resumed although not so happy that they are in the evening as I am already tired before I even start. Still a new teacher (Ed Cooper) made for a change of ideas and I ended up doing one drawing left-handed – a very interesting experiment. I also produced a shockingly bad picture of my house which looks like a baby drew it, the proportions are so wrong its laughable, I seem to have an issue with consistency……sometimes I feel I am improving and then bang!
