Sat in a cafe in central Bristol trying to draw a seagull who was chomping down huge chunks of bread left over from someones baguette. I spent some time looking at a pigeon with the most amazing eyes, orange like beacons. The rest of the pigeon was manky and citified, half a foot, walked with a limp, asking me for any spare crumbs, but his eyes were amazing.

Over on Crackbook a bunch of us are going to be working through Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain: A Course in Enhancing Creativity and Artistic Confidence
The first exercises are to draw a self portrait, your hand and something else I can’t remember so you can see improvement. Then you move onto drawing a vase from a silhouette. You can see the vase exercise here – http://drawright.com/vaceface.htm.
The plan is to do an exercise every Sunday from the book.
