I’m very excited to be offering the first Art Holiday in the series:
‘Landscapes in Mixed Media’
7 – 9 November 2017
Want to learn something new, or just indulge your Inner Artist?
Explore the stunning North Cornwall coast for some sketchbook drawing, and then return back to base to create mixed media paintings. Enjoy also the specially designed ‘Leafscape’ workshop with experienced tutor Liz Gregory, who’ll show you how to use found natural materials to make eye-catching pictures.
Accommodation and full board included, as well as friendly expert tuition, materials and trips. Suitable for all levels.
Go to Boscastle Art Breaks, for more information and to book, or email me at boscastleartbreaks(at)gmail.com
And don’t worry if you can’t make the November one – I’ll be running the art break again in the springtime. Check the website for details.
It looked pretty much like this today. A little sketch showing the harbour mouth, with the fabulous slate rock. I love the colours when it rains – they have a depth and translucence to them. Hoping for some sunshine over the weekend, though.
Hope you have a good one.
Lizard Quay Boathouse – Painting in Progress
Only three days to go until my first ever solo exhibition. So excited! Trying to get this painting finished in time. Almost there!
I’m just launching Anita’s Arty Facts where you can hear about new work, forthcoming shows, and special offers. It’ll be sent by email every two months & you’ll be able to unsubscribe at any time. Sign up by clicking the link here.
It’ll be good to have you along.
And because it’s raining today, here’s one of my favourite paintings …
Mixed Media Painting
Acrylic & Mixed Media on Board 12 x 11 ins / 30 x 28 cm
Unframed £ 275
Just finished this Cornwall painting of Lizard Point Quay. Love the way the rich textures of the stonework and the vibrant blue-green colours of the boats and sea turned out. It’ll be available shortly – please message me soonest via the Contact Form if you’d like to reserve it.
Watercolour, 30 x 20 cm/11.5 x 8 ins
Bude was surprisingly green the other day. I drew this from the lovely Wroes coffee shop. My first time sketching in a café – only got a few strange looks! I had to wait until I got home to put the colour washes on – by the time I’d finished drawing, the view was obscured by rain. Bude’s still a great place to draw, though, even in the mizzle. You can see a couple of my other paintings of Bude here and here . Both are still available on my website should you be interested.
Thanks for looking, and hope you’re having a good weekend.
Windswept Tree – Sketchbook Drawing
The weather’s been good again here this week, so I did this little sketch outside, on the cliffs. I wanted to capture the way the wind blows the tree, and the strong shadows and colours – the wondrous blues, golds and russets at this time of year.
Hope you have a good weekend, notwithstanding …
