This is probably my favourite drawing from yesterdays outing! I am playing around with word and image using stamps in my work and also drawing on unusual papers. I am doing the GCSE exam alongside my year 11 students which is fun and proving to be very valuable to them as well.

I like what has happened in this drawing as you can see Norwich Castle in the background being covered by the boards of a building site. The crane also looks ironically ominous in the composition, floating above the Castle. It makes me think that it's going to lift the traditional Castle out of an environment to make way for something possibly more modern looking in the way 'regeneration' tends to go!
