Winter blues

Cornwall, Winter 2018

Winter is a difficult time for drawing nature. It’s too cold to spend time outside, the light indoors is too dark and the studio is freezing cold. I would rather spend the month hibernating if I could. The trees have a stark beauty to them though, in their naked position against the grey sky. I’m lucky that behind my flat is a small park with several trees in it. I can sit at my studio window and draw them from there.

I’m currently giving one to one tuition at my studio in Islington. Prices from £20 an hour (a discount can be arranged for students and those on a low income).

Group workshops

Small group workshops are regularly given in Islington and the surrounding area. Contact me for upcoming classes or get together with a bunch of friends for a private class. Classes can be for beginners or more advanced and subjects can include drawing, watercolours, coloured pencils, mixed media and collage, home printing techniques, botanical illustration and drawing animals.
