I'm doing a drawing course at the moment, on Monday evenings - I don't know why you need to know that - and I'm really enjoying it. It's fascinating how much about art I don't know. Every week, I learn something that blows my mind a little bit.

We had this wonderful lesson on contour drawing, for example - I think that's what you call it. It's where you look at someone, or something, and you try and replicate it without taking your pencil off of the paper.
