I had not finished my tonal pattern during the week – I must do it before next – so had nothing to show the class – I had brought my completed 1st drawing of all ,

We did tiny sketches 1st to practise simplification – not difficult for any designer . I cut out freehand which is more tricky/fun and used the brown tones . I should have used the grey but , as I said to Geraldine , I’m dying for lack of colour !

Next week we will finally start on painting ( watercolour ) , although it will apparently still be monochromatic .
