Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

National Gallery - Talk and draw

Yesterday I went to the National Gallery to one of their 'Talk and Draw' events. It was a first for me and I must say I really loved it. You were given a short talk on the painting which was 'Combing the hair' by Degas. Then you were given some ideas on how to draw the picture. All the materials were provided free and then we had about 20 mins to do our own interpretation of the picture.  Guess which one I did!!!!!!!
