Brilliant day, drawing-wise, as usual. Fabulous model, George, thank you. Catch up with friends and very scrummy lunch, all delightful.

Wonderful day, catching up with friends.........it seems such a long time since I went to a HAS life session. I elected to take only drawing materials and regretted not having my oils to paint the glorious model. I don't usually have dark skin to paint, so missed opportunity there. We followed the usual format, with quick sketches throughout the morning and a longer pose in the afternoon.

My submission has again been rejected for the BP Portrait Award. From 2,377 entries, 55 works have been selected. I think it would have been a miracle! Guilt now takes over at money wasted.............especially with the bailiffs knocking at the door!

Charcoal, 1 hr
Had a brilliant day with a new model, Amanda, who was young and buzzing with energy and quite delightful!
We had two 15min and half a dozen 30sec warm ups, which are a total disgrace and not for public scrutiny. I was happy enough with these two pieces, although, do you notice that I have concentrated on the head again? And she had a stunning figure....didn't we all at her age?
