I attended a brilliant workshop for drypoint, led by the fantastic NICOLA SLATTERY RBA. Instruction was clear, simple, easily understood, Nicola was a very good tutor. We all enthusiastically got stuck in, and produced some lovely prints. It was a fabulously enjoyable day. So, now, does anyone have an unwanted printing press for sale? I would really like to do more!

The First Ones

 I love this flower girl.....but her leg is wonky, and, I wonder if she was a reject! I can find no reference on the internet, although I can find similarly styled other work. I think her wonky leg adds to her charm.

 I love how tactile this one is, to hold in your hand is calming and stress-relieving.
This one reminds me of one I made myself when I was about twenty.

You might wonder why I posted a pic of a portable easel in the last post. To illustrate the fantastic bargains can be found sometimes. This easel sells for £150 when new. I picked up this beauty for £15! I do love a bargain.

My interest has been elsewhere this year. I have been frequenting the local Antiques markets and finding amazing treasure. I adore small bronzes, although only because I can’t afford big ones! I buy what I like which has resulted in a very mixed bag, but I love them all.
