I went to an art class today with my mum's friend. I felt really shy when I walked in and I was of course the youngest there the average age was 70 so I felt slightly silly lol There was supposed to be a lady coming to teach pastels only she got lost and did not come so was rather disappointed as that was the reason I went. So my mum's friend and 2 other ladies and a man just sat talking not doing any art, so I said I want to do something so I tried drawing a toucan from the picture on the front of a paper pad that the lady had whilst they all stared at me and put me off!! I will scan it later it looks more like Rod Hull’s Emu lol I did not realise pastels were so messy but I like the affect I need a blending tool, this lady had one but I did not like using hers, I think flowers would look lovely. There were a few men there who were brilliant artists but they were too engrossed in doing their painting I daren’t interrupt them to ask anything.
