Settled for the start of Winter

Winter is definitely on it's way here in Hungary. My breath hangs heavy in the air and my nose and fingers are numb and red in the chilly mornings. And it is only mid-Autumn. I have just moved into a little dorm room all on my own in the local University in Győr.... where for the winter I will be leading a small drawing class!

The view from my window looks out onto the river bank. I can just make out the water beyond the trees going on it's slow way. I am SO grateful I have a view of a natural scene to inspire me at my drawing desk, I think I would suffer creatively If I had to stare at a concrete wall all winter long.

The only "souvenirs" I allowed myself whilst travelling Italy and London where postcards from the Art Museums I visited. I spent my first night sticking these up for inspiration..... and I began on my newest drawing!! She's quite large isn't she???

Next step is actually preparing for my classes. I am very nervous, I've never taught an unruly group of college students before!!


  1. This is wonderful! I cant wait to see that large picture when youve finished!

  2. That last comment was from me, Angie! Damn confusing intertrons!

  3. Great to see you're already at work !!!
    What a peaceful view & a romantic, lovely inspiration wall! And poor nose tip! ;D stay warm (If you have a wish list of warm items let me know!).

  4. You'll be wonderful - they're lucky to have you!! Sending you warm wishes a-plenty!! :D xxx

  5. *sending you warm vibes*

    How exciting that you're teaching a class! I'm sure that you'll do fine. Will you be teaching the whole semester?


Oh! How did you know? I absolutely adore comments, thank you! :-) I appreciate all the feedback I get xx
