For some week 6 has been to immerse oneself in cake eating and sketching, for charity of course. A very pleasant way to spend a few hours.
For others it was one of the most essential lessons we do. Eye level perspective. Getting yourself from your pesky left brain and into your calm right brain is the clue to ‘getting’ this. So a week of contrasts indeed.
Weather has been another challenge everywhere. I do congratulate those who were wrapped in wet weather gear and trying something new at the same time. For others of course the weather meant less. Munching – and sketching homemade cakes is even nicer when tucked up inside with the rain beating against the windows.
It’s also the first time we’ve ever had to cancel an Intensive. Weather warnings were going to be impossible for those flying in from another city. Wow. Must be something to behold.
Here in Europe we’ve had floods and rain too. Luckily now we are getting our sunny days back and it’s looking beautiful again. We have the big important Cerise Festival (Cherry) here in Trausse on Sunday. Bunting is up. Stalls being erected and much merriment will take place. One of my students and myself will take this chance to sketch the goings on.
All the sketches have been a pleasure to see. The skills you are picking up week by week are evident. Your tutors are very proud to see how far you’ve come. Of course there’s always more to learn, but If you are able to begin to see the world in shapes you’re on your way. And when you do. Everything falls into place.
