my Drawings and Paintings

In April 2024 I overheard a woman talking about an Art group she attended so I asked her about it. Rochdale Artists meet on Tuesday and Wednesdaty in Castleton and I started going to the Tuesday group on 30th April.

1971 - Beach Belle - pencil - my first sketch since junior school
I was revising some mathematics and had a page full of equations when I moved my wrist and accidentally drew a curved line.
I thought, that looks like a thigh I wonder where the rest is, then started to extend the line rubbing out equations as I went.
It turned out to be the beach belle. I copied the original onto a clean sheet of paper to avoid the half rubbed out equations.
