I'm not a journal person but I'll write a few notes here to introduce myself! I'm retired and I live in Scotland. As a teenager I used to draw then it all got forgotten as I got serious about life, got married, had a family, followed a career then eventually realised you should never get serious about life.

I've re-discovered drawing and I love it. I go to weekly life drawing sessions in Glasgow at a pub (yes a pub!). Have a look at for all the details and I've realised that I should have maintained my drawing habit. My pictures would be so much better now!! Anyway, better late than never!

I prefer drawing people with architecture as a close second. When I say 'people' I mean the female of the species. I hate drawing men! Please don't lecture me on classical statues and the Greeks or Romans. Men just don't cut it.

However, if you have any suggestions about improving my capabilities or subjects I could tackle then let me know!
