Sorry, not HAS! I went along, last evening, to a local art club, St Germans, and found a welcoming, warm, busy atmosphere. Everyone had brought along something to do, be it flowers, photos of landscapes or cats or dogs, and then there was me, who asked permission to sketch the artists at work. I got a jolly nice, interested, response, both to the request, and to the results.
I started with carbon pencil, and hated it. So I changed to charcoal..........much better, far quicker to get a result and much more managable.
