more from West Dean

A few supplies await in my window for when I'll need them later. The instant coffee is for the mornings; the fruit is to be taken to the studio for afternoon snacks; the Fisherman's Friend packet of "traditional menthol eucalyptus lozenges" is a hedge which I will hope not to have to use!
A view of the end of the Orangery where we had drawing class last week.
One of the Tapestry & Textile Art students, Magenta, works on her drawing at the Orangery.
Another of the T & TA students, Erica, works on a drawing at the Orangery... note the fish in the pan at her feet, the subjects for her drawing.
The Orangery and the Church beyond... at one of the few sunny moments during the past week.
My space at the studio on Sunday before I cut off the first sampler.

My first sampler is finished on Sunday... and as I compare it with the original from which I worked I see that the lights aren't light enough. The dark and mid ranges are OK but the lights in the weaving are much too dark. I've re-warped and will weave the same cartoon again this week to attempt a better match of value.

A few of my figure drawings from Richard's modeling session last Tuesday.
