I am continuing with the life drawing classes on Fridays and getting a lot of experience from them. They are FE classes put on by Norfolk County Council who have unfortunately removed subsidies for over '60's. I'm still managing to attend and have started using soft pastels and A1 size sugar paper. I always do a number of sketches in my sketch book with pen and ink - my favourite media at the moment.

Life Drawing classes at Wensum Lodge in Norwich.

Holkham Beach looking toward the pinewoods. Sorry didn't catch the horses in full canter.

Yesterday we were out walking from Holkham to Wells and back through the nature reserve at Holkham - with stunning views and beautiful weather. The beach at Holkham is vast and flat - it is reached through pinewoods and is completely uncommercial. There were horses cantering through the surf and on the sands - all breathtaking. We finished the day watching the sunset from Cromer Pier - thoug a bit cloudy - still as good as the med!
