At the start of January I bought these books (got to love the Amazon Marketplace, especially when the books qualify for free delivery – two books for the grand total of £4.88!). I genuinely can’t remember why, which is a bit annoying, but I suspect it’s because I saw them mentioned somewhere and thought they were pretty…
Moving swiftly onwards… I had a quick flick through the first book (The Goddess Guide) and this page caught my eye:
It’s a section about Miss Lecroc, a woman who paints portraits of handbags and their contents. Click here to view an article about Miss Lecroc.
This attracted me a lot, not least because it’s the sort of thing I like to do. I did make a start on the contents of my handbag a few years ago, sketching just the bare essentials (click here to have a peek) and seeing that someone out there is actually making a living doing this has inspired me to have another go (I would never have thought that the contents of a handbag were of interest to anyone except the owner, but apparently I was wrong!). I’ll report back during the next Sunday Sketchblog.
