I attended Freshers Day at Art College last week, which was great, very informative. I thought I was attending A level Art but I also received an unconditional offer for the Art & Design foundation Diploma which, on reflection, will be much better for me. So, I accepted this offer. That means I will now be studying Art & Design full time - Yippeee!!!
Our Head Tutor thought that we would do an impromptu drawing session at the Fresher event, and we found ourselves choosing a dead fish to draw. We had less than an hour to do this and the variety of the finished articles were great - so many varying styles - so much to learn from other students.

I was generally happy with this picture as it was done so quickly. A chinograph pencil had sneaked into the watercolour pencil box and I didn't spot it until after I had used it to make the black marks on the back of the fish. This pencil doesn't work with water so the colour didn't spread. Learning point: check the pencil before you use it, even if it has disguised itself in the watercolour box!
