Demonstrations and workshops
Demonstration time has loomed once again, after the Christmas and New Year break. I have been booked for 17 demo's around the South of England up until November, that'll keep me busy! I really love doing these and sharing my knowledge with fellow art lovers. This is the sort of thing I have been doing of late. Using Derwent pastels on Colourfix paper.

In these austere times, I have decided to start offering a print service for those who either don't have the funds or just wall space. I am currently charging a fee of £25 + p&p, which gets you a maximum size of A4 signed print. You can choose whichever one you'd like! I have had quite a few orders already, so am pleased that I can access new customers this way. If you are interested do contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org
As well as my Fractured paintings, I have begun to do a series of 'traditional' landscape pastels. Every now and then I like to go back to basics and create normal landscapes. Here are a selection. They are all 23cm x 30cm and completed in Derwent pastels.

It has taken me a while to get up, back to speed, after I did Jury Service in January. However, with my new toy, an i Pad, I wasn't ever starved of painting and sketching! I caused a bit of a stir, in the waiting room, sketching out ideas. At one point I had 20 people around me, asking me all about it! I'm hoping to gain some commissions from people I met while doing Jury Service. I blame David Hockney! If it wasn't for his passion for digital art, I wouldn't have wanted one so badly!
This is a digital sketch of an idea I had, and below it, the proper one, created in Derwent Coloursoft. I missed using my pencils and brushes, and loved getting messy once again! I couldn't replace digital art with real art.
