Last Saturday I went on a drawing day in Cambridge organised by White House Art. Neil Payne was the tutor, he has a fresh, wacky approach and came along with lotsof different pens, charcoal, graphite pencils, water colour crayons (use spit to wet and smudge them was his advice) - obviously no water allowed in the museum.
We spent the morning in the Sedgewick, full of wonderful bones, fossils and crystals to inspire us.
In the afternoon we were at the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, full of collections from many different cultures.
These were huge containers for food served at feasts, they were beautiful. I haven't photograped any of my sketch book pages yet, some still to be finished. It was reminder of how lucky we are to have wonderful museums to visit - I last went to the 'Arch and Ant' went I was at school in Cambridge!
