There is wind where the rose was,
Cold rain where sweet grass was,
And clouds like sheep
Stream o'er the steep
Grey skies where the lark was.

Nought warm where your hand was,
Nought gold where your hair was,
But phantom, forlorn,
Beneath the thorn,
Your ghost where your face was.

Cold wind where your voice was,
Tears, tears where my heart was,
And ever with me,
Child, ever with me,
Silence where hope was.

Yes, Iˋve started to draw. I bought myself lots of coloured pencils, eareaser, sharpener and pencils in various thicknesses.
I try to draw three to four drawings a day. I like it.

I recognised that the boy I am in school for, likes to look a cartoons. He is always so facinated by the stories that I decided to help him by drawing pictures.
The teachers donˋt like when we talk in lessons to each other, because the teachers are disrupted when they have to teach something. So, when the boy has to ask me something during a lesson I often draw the answer on a sheet of paper. It works.

For me there is a lot to do, but the Internet has plenty of youtube entraces how to improve someones drawing skills.

    Have you seen this @Hermine? http://learn-english-forum.org/discussion/4692/mouse-pad-drawing#latest

    I have sometimes dabbled in drawing, using colour pencils.

    I use a notebook where I put my every day drawings in. I add the date. Recently two of my kids discovered it, and guess what they do, yes, they also draw in. Seemengly one of them is very talented.

    I also bought for almost € 11,-- an art model made of wood. Iˋve really now idea how theyˋre called.
    I can almost form it in every shape; sitting, standing, arms up and so on.

    In our school libary, there I found a small range of books about painters and drawers, but Dürer is my favourite, he drew so exactly, every line fits. Do you know ˋYoung Hareˋ one of his paintings, donˋt ask me how much it costs - currently.

    @mheredge, sorry, but I think Iˋm not a fan of this sort of drawing. It gives me more satisfaction when I do it with pencils. Our world is big and it offers for each individual the right methode to try out what theˋre made for.

    I admire his creativity @Hermine. I like line drawings very much, but I also love the use of colour. I saw some beautiful Raoul Dufy paintings today. I like his art.

    He painted in Nice too. This painting is called The casino in Nice. He is buried close to Matisse in the cemetery at Cimiez, Nice.

    @Marianne, it looks wonderful. Some people invest their money in paintings and arenˋt intested in the artists.
    I wanna to get a copy of it.

    It was rather frustrating as this particular museum is very small @Hermine and doesn't even seem to sell any postcards of the paintings it has on display. There were so many I liked. I was able to take a few photos but the light wasn't ideal and you're only allowed to take pictures with a flash.
