I've Got My Eye On you
The excitement didn't end there, and I got to spend the day at the Big Cat Sanctuary in Kent. It's one of my favourite places and I got to spend the day on one of Vic Bearcrofts workshops. I love going on workshops to try new things and spend time with like minded people and friends I have made along the way. This particularly workshop is just the best though, as I got to spend the morning on a guided tour inside the safety barriers photographing some of the most magnificent cats!!! Followed by an afternoon of drawing a tiger using a white crayon on black paper (def something I will be trying in the future!) The absolute highlight of my day though was getting to see Laila the snow leopard. I have visited the place numerous times and have only ever seen fleeting glimpses of the snow leopards, but it was to be my lucky day. She also had the best name (same as my daughters only spelt differently!) I took zillions of photos and I could't wait to get stuck into drawing her. The only difficult bit was deciding which idea to do first!! Sadly I've not found as much time as I had hoped this week to get an awful lot done as the twins has been running me ragged! This weekend I hope to get lots done so I can share with you next week and look at some of my techniques.
