I’m busy packing my bag as I’m off to Crick near Rugby for a day’s self indulgent painting with Karen Hubbard from the States….can’t wait.
BADFA, British Association of Decorative and Folk Arts are hosting her and I’m looking forward to catching up with old friends too…I’ve been a member of BADFA since I started teaching over 15 years ago!
Karen is renowned for her painting of insects and animals and I will be painting her ‘Maggie and Magnolias’ design below.
It’s such fun to be a student for a change and to learn new techniques that I can share with you all. I’m not a lover of cats but I know I will be able to use what I learn on bears and other wildlife…..if my eyes look anything like Karen’s I’ll be well chuffed!!
Will take lots of photos and blog when I get back…best go pack those brushes….and chocolate 🙂
