Drawing Tuesday this week was at the British Museum, based round rooms 41 etc. I took a right turn at Sutton Hoo ( which was swarming with excited small fry with clipboards) and headed away from the darkened rooms to the brightly lit room 48
We had sufficient members to take in guests and have lunch in the members room , 10 of us taking over the large table upstairs . We're not used to having so much space! When it came to sharing our sketchbooks, the days drawing filled the last pages of my 'Museum sketchbook' which appropriately enough started with the British Museum drawing class in 2016 . I must go through and tally up the places visited .' Charmed Lives' about Ghika, Craxton and Fermor in Greece so I had a look round on my way out.
This painting by Ghika of Mystras made me feel particularly nostalgic - we were there last year on our week in Gythion . I was feeling a bit sad as we should be in Greece now on a tour of ancient sites but reluctantly cancelled as I've been having some health problems and am on a restrictive diet. Hopefully we can go another time when things have settled down.
Margaret C. mentioned there was a Pojagi exhibtion on in Museum Street ( we both did a class with Chunghie Lee) , just round the corner from the BM so I called in on the Han Collection. Some lovely colourful works and I couldn't resist the catalogue and a little bag ( machined rather than hand stitched)
My final stop before heading home was a visit to the wonderful MacCulloch and Wallis in Poland Street in Soho. I'd run out of bondaweb and not only was I able to buy it from a roll rather than folded but it was carefully rolled round a solid cardboard tube and wrapped in brown paper. I'll be visiting again when I have more time.
