Fifty shades of grey
I knew that would make you look. Sorry to disappoint but I am talking about the charcoal drawing that I learned how to do at the art class that I attended this morning. The group is a lovely group of smashing local people and I have had a thoroughly lovely morning. We played with charcoal and were shown how to use it to shade and colour in a sketch. I am thrilled to bits with my first attempts as I had no idea that you could be taught to draw. I had assumed that you were born with the ability to paint and draw and simply needed to practice a skill that you already had. Mary Lou the teacher is a great lady for boosting confidence and I wish we had a teacher like her at school when i was growing up.
