The theme of todays workshop was memories of Bristol. Since I’m not Bristolian and we live in the Mogadishu quarter I don’t have nice memories about our area. But I do like Cabot Tower, which you can helpfully see from the window of the Mshed studio.
One of the good things about Cabot Tower is the ice cream truck – Vee Double Moo which sells the most incredible salted caramel topped ice cream.
My 10 year old printed ice cream, with a random turtle on top and then made patterns out of turtles.
I printed the tower and the greenery around it.

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.
