when pigs fly over greenwich

Here's a sketch I did for a Valentine's Day card I'm working on. Still a few things to jiggle around, but I hope it will look good. I'm going to a watercolour painting class this evening with my friend, Steph. I've never had anyone actually teach me watercolour technique (they don't do that at British art school, that 'teaching' thing, which is why it's ten times cheaper than in the USA), so it should be interesting.

That's a sweet sketch! I hope you enjoy the class. Watercolors are tricky, but kinda fun too.

Thanks! I love working with them, but there's so much I don't know. Like, working with computers and Photoshop. I just know what I really need to know, but I'm sure there's a zillion more things I could do.

Me too. I have to learn more about Photoshop for sure.

The pigs are back!!! I LOVE the way you do their snouts!!!!
Haha! How very true about British art schools. On my very first day in class Jan announced "I'm not going to teach any of you how to draw!" which prompted a few concerned expressions...
Let me know how the class goes (I'm sparing a thought for the teacher, who is probably nowhere near as skilled as you!)

Re: nonny-mouse anna here
Hi, Anna!! They're at the Kirkdale Centre in Syndenham, part of Lewisham borough's adult education classes. It's not at all advanced - the first time we started off by learning how to put up an easel, but the tutor gave me a hand because I was the worst easel-putter-upper in the class. ;-P He's really old school, all about doing it 'properly', very unlike college.
