At the Holy Well
At the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Garden,
My studio space at the St Ives School of Painting,
My attempts at Hepworth inspired chalk and charcoal drawing,
Pretty patterns made in the sand (not by me sadly)
I really did have a wonderful time, I mostly enjoyed wondering through the many many little art gelleries that they have all though the centre of St Ives displaying work of local and national artists. Sometimes the artists were even there to chat to. I saw some truly beautiful art work and especially enjoyed the work of Izumi Omori and Yvonne Coomber at the Imagination Gallery and the work of Lily Van Der Stokker at the Tate St Ives. I also really enjoyed wandering through the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Garden,
I was so inspired by the whole thing and am now desparate to get started on my own work, especially from the mono prints, sketches and painting I did during the workshops we had.
I really needed this break to get away from lots of things really, and felt really good while I was away, I feel refreshed and renewed and ready to face the final two weeks and two days of term that I have left!!
