Last Saturday I participated a masterclass, given by Marjolein Kruijt - a very talented artist of drawing and painting animals, wildlife and nature. She has won a lot of prices all over the world. This masterclass was about drawing animal-portraits in pastel.

It was the first time for me not to draw from a photograph, but from a real "life" model (it was a stuffed (taxidermied) animal, so it was not moving...).

I really enjoyed the day and I learned a lot!
