Wishing a Happy New Year to all sketchers everywhere.
Join us for our first drawing session of 2015 at the National Museum Cardiff.

You can find inspiration among the thousands of fascinating exhibits at this wonderful museum or, if you like a little discipline, then the subject of the day will be EYES!

Human eyes, insect eyes, strange octopus eyes.
Sculpted eyes, painted eyes, drawn eyes.
Egyptian eyes or eye of the tiger.

What will you draw?

You'll miss all the best things if you keep your eyes shut.
See yourself through the eyes of others.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
The eyes are the mirror of the soul.
Eyes wide open, eyes wide shut.
The night has a thousand eyes.
You are the apple of my eye.
Can't believe my own eyes.
I'll keep an eye on you.
Turn a blind eye.
The I's have it.
