Tomorrow, 12 April, I shall be giving a talk to the Cambridge Drawing Society at St John's Church on Hills Road. I was due to do this in 2019 but covid intervened. I did do a very different talk online about how I sketched every day during part 2 and 3 of the pandemic and made the drawings into 2 books. During the initial covid outbreak I did classes on zoom, managed the garden, went for walks and painted, which I very much enjoyed as I was not ill!
The event in the church tomorrow is supposed to be a demo, but I paint very slowly with so much detail I thought it would be far too boring. Instead, I am giving a talk about why I paint like I do, where my influences lie and a quick demo for everyone to join in on adding gold leaf.
It is a bit daunting! I don't know how many people will be there but I know they are all practising artists. There will be slides to accompany my talk. Writing this the day before the event, I realise I really don't know what I am going to say for 2 blocks of 45 minutes. Please wish me luck!
