Wow, thanks for all the replies guys! Yeah I've been working really hard and havent even updated my CA sb (thats a sign I really have no time!)
Marian - yeah I hadn't even heard about it! But yeah I would really like to go, after all CA is responsible for changing my life on some level
Nickybeats - Haha, thanks man, there is a lot further to go yet!
denzalan - cheers amigo, thanks for stopping by
axelga2112 - thanks, yeah obvservational drawing is definitely one of my strongest points, it makes up for some serious deficits in other areas!
p sage - haha cheers man, I'm trying at least!
Velocity - yeah it really does feel like hard work! But I can't really complain, on my days off I get to paint and sketch my personal work.
udonhead - thanks, theyre improving very gradually by the day! Some great teaching going on at TAD, and lost of slave-driving
But I think I might be able to get back into it now. I'm working all the time these days, and have really landed on my feet here in Bristol. I'm having to do a café job, which is horribly tiring, but at least I have some time to do art, so I can't complain!
Here are some perspective exercises that I did this evening to relax, after using oils today. (I'll post that too tomorrow).
Anyway, I'm going to keep updating this sketchbook because I made a challenge to myself that I'd get it to 100 pages before I even thought about giving up, and I'm a long way from that yet!
