Happy New Year to all you Arty Folk

Whoosh!! where did Christmas Go!!  It went quicker than keeping a wet edge from drying on you.

I hope that you all had a very good Christmas and now feeling refreshed and ready for the new year ahead.

I shall be busy this week compiling all the schedules ready for classes, that are resuming next week from Monday the 9th January.  I look forward to seeing some of you back at classes next week and I will be bringing all the lovely Christmas cards painted by many of you to show them off.  For those of you that don’t attend a class, I will be sending a post out very soon with images of all the Painted Christmas Cards I received.

Exploring Pen and Wash Workshop Update.

13 in no keen learners signed up for a day exploring Pen and Wash Techniques, using a range of Waterproof  & Water-soluble Pens, Dip Pens, Sticks & Ink with the addition of watercolour washes.  Plied with plenty of tea, cakes, along with a deluge of drawing and painting exercises, it kept them busy on a very cold day at the Warehouse Arts Centre at Bodmin, .

Here are a few pictures from the workshop.  Thank you to all that attended, it was certainly a busy and most enjoyable day.

Animal Portraits in Pastel Workshop Round-up

What a Super Day we had, in a great venue (Cartwheels Craft Centre) and on a warm sunny day in October.

We spent the morning hard at work and then enjoyed a relaxing picnic lunch in the sunshine and once we dragged ourselves away from the lovely weather Portraits were completed.

And here are the results of the day.





The likeness of each of them is exceptional and I am very proud of each of the learners.  Well Done All.
