When  I was in La Gomera I thought I would do loads of oil paintings from the sketches, iPad drawings and photos that I had amassed during our week there.    As it has turned out I have only done three and not sure I will do any more ….    being so busy getting ready for DORSET ART WEEKS  and preparing for other exhibitions has taken up so much time that the memory etc has faded.  Which is a pity, it was lovely and we were both surprised – such a varied and beautiful UNSPOILT   island – so close to the dreaded Tenerife …..     The Villa Cortes was actually in Tenerife and was where we had to wait for four hours between ferry and plane….  fortunately I had my little iPad in my bag so was able to do some drawing!
