A lovely Old Mill

O dear it’s a real case of wanderlust this morning I saw this and wanted to chuck my visual journal, pencils, pens, brushes and watercolours into my backpack, put on sensible shoes, and pack a lunch. The over powering urge was to go for a walk, poke around and spend a few hours drawing. There is one slight technical hitch however the Knockando Wool Mill is unfortunately on the other side of the world.

Su of Floating needle sent me an email that drew my attention to it. Su says it’s a lovely mill, complete with water wheel, which although is still in use is in need of restoration.

Now I really am going to get some work done … this is getting silly.

Bauhaus Museum

The Bauhaus Museum holds sculptures drawings and paintings, by artsits such as Albers, Feininger, Itten, Klee, Kandinsky, Muche, Moholy-Nagy, Schlemmer, and Schreyer. Unfortunately very little of the collection appears online. In comparison with some of the museum sites that have highlighted their collections using the web this site is poor. However it is a good site to do a bit of pre-research if you are planning to visit. The site is bilingual and provides information about the collection and shop.
