This week we visited the Harold Gosney Retrospective Exhibition at The North Lincs Museum, Scunthorpe.
Harold Gosney was a tutor at the Grimsby School Of Art Foundation Course when I studied there.
It was one of the best years of my life and completely changed the way I looked at the world.
Looking back, it was like going to Hogwarts, every tutor was incredibly talented and dedicated and they were all such amazing characters.
Here's our Sam, looking very studious indeed.
It was brilliant to see his sketches and maquettes, as well as the final pieces.
It was food for the soul, much needed during this busy and demanding time of the term.
I always find the preparatory work and thought processes fascinating, and just as beautiful as the finished pieces.
The students were really inspired and produced really lovely sketches.
I couldn't resist getting out my trusty old sketch book too!
(Can you tell that I couldn't quite get the horse's head in the right position!)
Happy memories of happy days...
