Patra's Other Place

I started out with Patra's Place, primarily dedicated to my linen collection and stitching projects. But I kept getting side-tracked, so I decided to create Patra's Other Place for anything not related to embroidery topics. So you now have a choice. If you are interested in me, read this. If you only want to see my linen and stitching, visit Patra's (original) Place! (Please note that by clicking on any of the photos, they will be enlarged to fill your computer screen.)

My sketching skills have improved somewhat!

I spent today at a one day workshop with artist Janet Matthews. Ten of us learnt how to draw a Boobook Owl using coloured pencils (not watercolour pencils). It was a lovely day; as well as being a very good tutor, Janet is very friendly and easy-going, so it was a pleasure to learn her techniques.
She provided this photo of the owl for us to work with, and instructed us to only draw the head, as that is all we would have time for. She was right!


And here is my interpretation:
