New to drawing…

As many people have this year, I have taken up art as a new hobby. I spent most of 2020 trying to learn to paint with cheap acrylics or watercolours. I even gave embroidery a shot and I have all the equipment to prove it. At Christmas I was very lucky to be given an... Continue Reading →

Personal Prose Pt.7
