The thoughts and works of a caffeine addicted artist!

Isn't the BBC fantastic? So many wonderful programmes on art and such amazing costume dramas too! I was lucky enough to catch a programme on Tuesday entitled 'Imagine: Let there be light' that focused on American artist James Turrell and his wonderful creations that stir the senses using light as his main medium.
I also caught the second part in the BBC4 series 'Picture Book' on Wednesday. This week's episode spotlighted books for young readers and offered a feast of wonderful illustrations from books such as 'Winnie the Pooh' and 'The Wind in the Willows'. Books were not a huge part of my childhood, infact I don't remember a single one until, as a teenager, I read the Adrian Mole Diaries. As someone who now wishes to venture into writing and illustrating a book for children, this series has been a priceless form of research and I am really looking forward to the final part on Wednesday this week.
