Painting and Drawing vol.6 (One-Year Course – Holly)

Week 6
Monday

I kept experimenting with the ink and paper drawings. I found this a long process and feel will take a lot of practice. (1) Afterwards I met a sculpture artist and she shown me around her workshop. It was terrific and a great experience I got to see loads of plaster casts to draw from. (2) Then went to meet my friend for a glass of wine with a beautiful view of the Ponte Vecchio. (3)
