New Year ~ New Project
A very exciting project ahead, that will be going to print in 2020 !
This first post on the new news page sends wishes to everyone for a happy and peaceful new year.
The beginning of a new year can often be a daunting time, not knowing what is ahead, but as a working artist and tutor, I try to look upon it positively.
Some projects are ongoing from the previous year, but in some cases new ones start. This is the case with me for 2019. I have been given a wonderful opportunity and have been commissioned to write a book, which will be going to print in 2020. The project will take just over a year to complete and a whole new body of work is required.
Now I have got over the initial shock, I am very excited by this prospect as it means I will have the chance to work on subjects that I have wanted to focus on for a long time. Lots more fieldwork too !
Don't forget there are still workshops and courses going ahead, details of which can be found here on the website. The new project course is ongoing and there will also be the popular two day workshops through the year covering a variety of subjects for all skill levels.
I will also be teaching a 3 day Botanical Sketchbook workshop for the Chelsea School of Botanical Art in June http://www.chelseaschoolofbotanicalart.co.uk/short-courses/
The online courses are also going to be running. Drawing Nature - Part 1 starts this month and Drawing Nature - Part 2 will be open for registration in July. Welcome to all new students.
So I look forward to seeing some of you over the next year, at exhibitions and workshops and courses. Happy drawing and painting and don't forget 'practice makes progress' !
