Every single link lost. All the structure. None of the text left. The air was blue for a good five minutes.
Then I decided to switch off the computer to teach it a lesson and go and draw Rembrandt instead.
I actually went into town to a lunchtime event at the National Gallery to hear about Degas worked (fascinating - more about this later this week). After which I treated myself to a nice lunch and a long sketch of people at lunch - which you'll see tomorrow on my sketchbook blog.

Then I went off for a tour of the National Gallery and decided to have a go at drawing Rembrandt. So here's my version of Self Portrait at the age of 63. It's not very good - the shape is wrong and the colours are wrong - but it was very nice to just sit and draw in the National Gallery.
I think I might have another go at getting it better.
What do you do when
- you've just had a major technological frustration?
- and/or you want to show your computer who's boss?
