Today for the first time fantastic weather. We drove to Castres, went shopping for art supplies, ate sandwiches on the square and drove home. M & M are busy with their new pens and fancy paint brushes and creating post cards to send home. Gwen is out sketching and I’m not sure what Janos is doing, maybe out sketching, too.
Yesterday evening we drove to a nearby farm where there is a fine example of a pigeonnier. Everyone was equipped with drawing pad and pen. Janos’s drawing was excellent, of course. He doesn’t have to struggle with perspective and proportions. M & M results were great. They are talented and their style unspoiled. I go along for the ride and draw with the group, but it isn’t my medium. Of course, anyone can draw if he is diligent enough and practices. But do I want to draw? I notice I am very quick to get impatient with the details.
