Angels Wings...

Looking at medieval church angels gave me inspiration... 
What started off with a simple idea... 
I then got carried away and made them much larger than I intended..
Phew! 
I should have made them in the summer when papier mache dries out much quicker...

I was meant to be collecting sloe's... But mine eyes wander...

High flying over Church Beach, Penryn..
 Instead I was... Taking photographs of this wooden horse..
 My husband disagreed and said it was an old ships rudder.. 
I think this old horse had wings...

Life Drawing at St Ives School of Painting

Mary Trapp a neighbour and artist is studying at the art school and asked if I'd like to come along to the life class at St Ives. The St Ives School of Painting is about an hour or so from where we live, so it is a bit of an effort to get there, but it was worth the effort. What an amazing and exhausting evening we had..
5, 4, 3, 2 and one minute poses. What a great exercise..
 Artist Steve Dove led the class with a gentle touch..
 This is my favorite drawing of the evening.
