I’ve started going to life class again, but this time I’ve signed up for a course of painting.  I usually draw with pencil, and the idea of trying to work in brushes and paint scared me, so I figured I had to give it a go.  I had the second session yesterday and I’m really enjoying it – it’s difficult, but great fun!  The tutor is evil though (ok, really he’s a nice bloke called Robin), yesterday he took my small size 6 brush off me, and fished through my brushes until he came up with a fairly coarse 1/2 inch flat brush.  After the brush I had been using it felt huge!  I’m also not allowed to use a pencil to do a sketch beforehand any more 8O.  I keep reminding myself ‘I wanted a challenge, I wanted a challenge…’
