Artists for a night

 Yesterday evening a few lucky friends and I took a workshop with a visiting South African artist, (our friend's mum!). The mantra was repeated again and again; "If you can trace, you can do it." Hmmmm.

Oh dear...more 'puffing' needed!

We giggled, scratched heads, took  photographs during the power cut, drank wine, spilt varnish, ate pizza and attempted to create master pieces! Thank you artist June for being patient with us!

This one was mine - I was going for simple!

It reminded me of my weekend drawing classes in Kuwait, just with wine instead of Kirsten's baking and no tears...only sweat!

Anyone know where I can take art classes in Nairobi?


  1. What lovely fun! I do love art, but that love isn't translated into the slightest bit of talent. Might have to stick to appreciating it and not doing it.

  2. I'm going for, "it's all about the process rather than the product"...makes me feel better! Yes, fun...but no wellies or tractor needed! Pray tell Mud!

  3. What a great experience, looking forward to following your blog!

  4. Robyn,
    Thanks for visiting me over at One of my good friends is from Kenya - I'd have to ask her if there were any good places to take art classes in Nairobi!

    I think it's awesome that you are living over there, and I look forward to reading more of your blog posts!

    P.S. I'll check out those food blogs, too!

  5. how fun! What a great way to spend the evening... and love that it's all about the process!

  6. Sounds and looks like a really fun experience. And I love all the pics you share here. :-)

    Happy weekend!

  7. These look really fun to make :) I love reading about peoples adventures!! Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  8. I'm new to this blogging thing, so, since I'be heard about your blog, I thought I would have a look.
    The art looks awesome! I would love to be good at art.
    Well... I'll be back!
