It’s been a busy year! Almost as busy as this bee on my hollyhocks ! I put these pictures in my window today. Hanging is hung …..today! (video PV’s soon!)
One of the good things for me about Hampshire Open Studios, is the opportunity to take stock and see where I am and the things that have happened in the preceding year; both as events and as developments in my work. What mostly strikes me is how busy and well travelled I’ve been this year! Directly after last year’s Open Studios we went to Northern Spain ⛰🏖🥂(back there soon so watch this space..!), done battle with self portraits👩🏻‍🎨and the #zornpalette over the winter , been to Rome 😘, ‘residented’ in Aspex gallery, Scotland 🥾🥾and the Isle of Skye🏔🏕, spent time with my friends in my Lymington ⛵️and The Art Academy in London 🎨 (for two different things!), been a judge at Pintar Rapido in Chelsea 🙏 🐩🐕🐾, painted in Dorset with @britpleinair, been to Somerset and visited with @david_a_parfitt_ri 🖼, I’ve been to my first proper art fair in Newbury 🐎, walked, camped and painted in beautiful Arundel 🏰, and have an exhibition in the Mall Galleries to look forward to ….Ahhh!!! There are a few bits and bobs still to do – but I’m mostly ready. Hampshire Open Studios is next week!!!! starting week Saturday – Please come along and see all about it! ☕️🚽August 17-22nd. 10-5pm NB 11-8pm on 22nd. East Street in Fareham.

Taster day at The Art Academy for Watercolour.

Some thoroughly good sports at today’s VERY FIRST Introduction to Watercolour Taster Course @theartacademylondon Delighted with all the technical bits these beginners tackled and impressed with their output over what amounted to a mere 5 hours of tuition. Bravo! See you next time for a longer course? #watercolour #workingfromlife #observationalart #worksonpaper @seawhiteofbrighton paper used during the day #BoroughMarket

Ever fancied trying #Watercolour ? I’m delighted to have been asked by @theartacademylondon to trial a taster day with Watercolour for them on July 27th.

Can you believe it? Pinch me please…..It really struck me yesterday as I updated my bio etc, ready for Open Studios, how amazing it is to work in the same building as these fabulous artists …let alone appear as a fellow tutor! Thank you @ArtAcademy and especially #taishanscheirenberg

#London #Teaching #ink #watercolour @ArtAcademy 

Yesterday I taught my first Watercolour and Ink session in London at The Art Academy. What a fun bunch you were! The day flew. We explored tone and building areas of washes with still life subject matter. And had a small introduction to the work of Richard Diebenkorn. 
Here’s another look at the photo of suggested brushes you will need. 

If you can’t get to London I will be teaching Art Basics again in Hampshire on Monday! In both groups next week we will be exploring colour.
