Stay cool and paint!

It might be sweltering outside but keep the blinds closed and enter the world of creating!

It’s worth printing out colour images and saving them in a protective file as you come across different topics. I’ve built up a wonderful image library over the decades! I keep them in sections (to be honest there are so many I have different book files!) and on a day like this a quick flip through soon motivates me into creating my next new acrylic painting (if I haven’t one on the go!).

Select your colour palette, take a deep breath and off you go into a wonderful colourful world! Happy painting! πŸŽ‰ 🎨

Designing for Christmas!

It might sound strange but come August Christmas card designs for private clients started!

Researching trends and colours for this year and design ideas resulted in one of the designs: Christmas in a Bottle. Work in progress… πŸŽ…πŸ»

Come October I will be encouraging students to create their own designs to send out to their loved ones πŸ’• πŸŽ„
