This week I've been busy working on my latest promotional mail out. That means lots of envelope writing and stuffing, sorting and organising. This always is a time consuming job, so besides drinking lots of coffee and tea (always essential for such tasks,) I also took some time to go out drawing. I've been wanting to go Museum drawing again for ages. It's something I'd love to do more of but struggle to find the time to do at the moment. This time I went to the British Museum. I had hoped to make it to the V&A also, but in the end ran out of time. I really enjoy wandering around the collections and then picking out what I feel like drawing. My plan was to do as much as possible at the Museum and then finish off at home. What I like about this is I'm limited in just how much I can lug around with me, and what is practical, so I take a selection of pencils and pens and then when I arrive I have to work with what I've got. Obviously there's so much to draw it's hard to know what to pick first but I knew I wanted to draw in the Mexico room where the wonderful pottery vessel was. There's so much I wanted to draw there so I'm definitely going back. The image at the bottom is from the Clock gallery. Again there were lots of beautiful objects in there. Both of these I then worked into when I got home.
I have more sketches that I still want to work up and lots more I'd like to draw so I will be going back!
Ok I'm getting back to it, there's still some more envelopes to stuff. Have a lovely week and I'll be back soon :)
