After climbing out of the end-of-term inertia and cocooning all weekend (DVDs, newspapers, heater, casserole, soup) I've begun to embrace - the holidays!!!! I've made a resolution to do a sketch every day. To make the job more manageable, I'm starting small, with an A5 Visual Art Diary and these fantastic water colours made in the Czech Republic and purchased ($12) from Art-On-King at Newtown. Sorry, officially they are "brilliant" water colours. They clip together and have a clear lid, very cute, very portable.
Yesterday - Monday - we celebrated NOT being at school by taking a country drive to Berrima and visiting Berkelouw's Book Barn & Cafe. It is a barn, chock full of second-hand and new books, some of which found their way back home with us. Lunch in the old pub with a fireplace was a perfect add-on. July winter holidays rock!
