Fancy an Art Break in Cornwall?

Welcome to my newest Venture – Boscastle Art Breaks

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.

Sketching in Bude

Bude green spring watercolour painting

Bude Sketch

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.
