For a long time now I have been thinking about and regretting my lack of formal art training. I can't really draw (hence the geometric nature of my work), I envy those who can pick up a pencil or paintbrush and just enjoy the process. I want to develop my skills and my art but needed a focus and direction.
I can't study formally as I am away so much so keep coming back to the City & Guilds Courses. I have lusted after the sketchbooks of Linda and Laura Kemshall and keep reading blogs mentioning work done as part of the course.
So after much hesitation from me and encouragement from Peter (and the accountant who tells me it is ok) I have signed up to do City and Guilds Patchwork and Quilting Level 3.
Just reading through all the first module (of 10) has already ignited a flame which has been dwindling recently. A trip to the art supply store to get the one or two items which I didn't already have was thrilling.
So let the journey begin!!!
I would love to hear any of your thoughts if you have embarked on this journey too.
Thanks for all your comments and encouragement. In answer to your question - yes I will blog my progress but not in excruciating detail as I don't want you to be bored.
