Me and my big mouth

I am so sorry, a few weekends ago when it was nice and warm and sunny I was heard to say:
"Knowing my luck by the time I have finished my course it will start raining for the rest of the summer".

Then I saw this in the UK Telegraph today. I am very very very sorry.

Another course!

But of course. It seems a bit topsy turvy but I have signed up for an online class via Joggles. It is exploring the use of the sketchbook as studio workhorse. I'm up to the second class already but I am little bit behind (quelle surprise) but nobody's putting on any pressure - its entirely at my own pace. The notes are so thorough that its almost like an interactive online book with lots of people following on and with author there to ask questions off.

I am taking a little time this afternoon to set my sketchbook up (the first after finishing my research for design project) and find I still have the fear of the blank sketchbook. Its silly really because it isn't as though I can "ruin" it - if I "mess up" I can always paint over or rip the page out (its spiral bound). Its a bit like how I was feeling this morning I couldn't find my current koh-i-noor paint palette, but I could find a spare new one - all pristine and clean looking:

Luckily I managed to remember what I had done with my current one:

much better mucky. (although I suspect I could get it messier).

Useful additional links for class 1 is a grid generator for grids and lines.

Kitchen discovery

I have just rediscovered the kitchen. In doing so I couldn't resist taking a picture of this quite literally yummy colour combination. Lime green spoon with blackcurrant coulis. Yes, G & Mr.T this does mean what you think it is. Also coconut macaroons are on the cards because a girl has to deal with her leftover egg whites somehow....

I have now got everything finished off for my City and Guilds. I now need to figure out what I am going to do with this blog. (which I haven't been updating....)
