Having wanted to do a formal art course for several years I have finally taken the plunge and enrolled on Drawing 1. I am excited but apprehensive, the usual questions of an unconfident mind jumping to my attention: ‘have I got what it takes?’; ‘will I have the resolve to see it to the end?’; ‘am I able to improve?’ and ‘am I good enough?’ are just a few!! However without actually committing to this journey (and it really is a journey for me) I will never know the answer to these questions…. and so I find myself here, enrolled and writing a blog! If the answer to any of those questions turns out to be ‘no’ … well I will have at least experienced the open road.
