In May 2011 I finished a Foundation Diploma in Art and Design and wanted to carry on learning, but didn’t have the funds or time for a full-time art degree. So designed my own virtual art degree course just for me, which I enrolled myself on in October 2011. However, this worthy idea has lapsed a little, and now I just get on with painting and sketching as much as possible – but not all the time. This blog is my journal which records what and how I am doing on each project that I’ve set for myself. Any comments or tips on my progress gratefully received.
