Bonfire night

Thankyou Phaedra, Amy, Holly, Jenny, Josh, Levente and Liam for an evening of sparklers, hot choccy, fun and games.

All of these were taken on my phone, no editing. I am so inspired by the sky every morning and evening. Cornwall is amazing! 

hello again.

hellohello, i have been gone a long time. Pretty much knocked flat by tiredness, work and uni applications. 
This is what I have been up to:
I have been on this thing everyday twice a day...

with me new chum Phaedra.

Made lots of work (print making is my favourite)

Went to Phil and Libby's beautiful wedding, stayed with friends and sneaked in a quick trip to London Galleries with Dad.

And yesterday spend half the day seeing my beautiful sissy and today with lovely Amy.
Friday was deadline day for my application, got it in just in time, a weight has been lifted- hoorah.

Autumn is here! tomorrow is the first day! How beautiful are the orange leaves in falmouth already. Tomorrow we venture to Gwithian beach to create 'sand drawings' of famous art, on huge scale to be seen from above, exciting! We are asked to bring garden tools, so i'll be taking my beautiful garden fork on the train tomorrow, cant wait. Problem is I can currently hear very heavy rain, hopefully this will stop before tomorrow or they will have some rather soggy, unhappy sneezing students to deal with, and we will no doubt have sand allover our clothes eek! i hope the sun comes out! 

This scarf is my favourite thing. Autumn, i love you.

This week has been mad and good and bad. These are parts of two strange but fun 5 hour drawing days that we did, who knew drawing for an entire day could tire you out so much.  It's been a blur of early starts, train times, walking up and down hills between buildings, heavy bags, lectures and drawing on big scales. blur is the word. Hopefully next week everything will have calmed down a bit, I begin on monday morning with a full day of measured drawing. If you've never done it before, it's the kind of drawing that frustrates and makes your vision fail you about an hour in, you have to really really look and be as correct as possible, some love it, i am not sure how or why.
This monday my dad gave me his old iphone, and got my contract changed for it somehow, extremely lucky! how lovely are these hipstamatic prints, i wish my film camera produced the same beautiful haphazard effects.
This morning i have done nothing at all, it has been bliss. Drinking tea and listening to this beautiful song  (its starts about 50 seconds in)
This afternoon i am planning my colonel mustard outfit for tomorrow's cluedo party at my sisters, and Amy moves into her new home for the year so i am going to help her get sorted. Exciting!

Look what i found!

My favourite painting to date? i think so!

today it began, we sat in the lecture hall all day listening to talks about library, health and safety and counselling, joy of joys. tomorrow the drawing begins 9-5. 'intense' year it shall be. eee i love new sketchbooks!

Summer is over. Considering locking myself away or running off to somewhere quiet and
beautiful? Back to Florence? Foundation sounds like a horrible idea this evening. I could
quite easily become a hermit. Anyway, onwards, despite this current feeling.
