Nereid Monument in Room 17, the tutor Anna Saunders explaining a bit about their history and significance. I've actually been to the site in Turkey where they came from ( allegedly the Turkish Government asked they be returned as they needed the Mediterranean behind them so the BM painted the walls blue...) She then took us through various exercises on capturing form and fluidity. We started with mark -making and then a couple of continuous line drawings ( which always to me are often livelier than finished work)
Anna was an excellent tutor, with lots of samples at different stages , giving encouragement and advice on an individual basis (eg identifying areas that weren't quite right and how to correct them) Looking forward to Power and Presence in Papua New Guinea next Sunday!
Meanwhile, following yet another configuration of my studio, I'm making good progress quilting my second Cwilt Cymru 'Cynefin' quilt, rewarding myself with lunch at Macknades and an exhilarating bike ride in the sun.
