After having spent a hectic week back in Chesterfield (my old home town) to run my Coloured pencil 'Pet portrait' Workshop which ran on the 9th of May (2015) and catching up with family and friends too, once back home in Newbiggin-by-the-Sea, I decided to take a rare day off from work to recuperate and myself and my partner John Graham, decided to head out on the bikes with our camera's to hopefully capture some new reference material and simply enjoy Mother Nature in all her glory! We headed off up the coastal road through Cresswell stopping off at Cresswell Pond to spend some time in their hide looking out at the waders and ending up at Druridge Pools who also has a few hides dotted around their lake too. A 20 mile round trip gathering such great photos were totally worth sore bottoms the next day!!
For anyone who does not know, I also have an official website dedicated to my Art Tutoring & 1 Day Workshops called 'Step by Step Art' - it has recently had a complete overhaul and as well as offering 1 Day Art Workshops in the UK, it has now been extended to offer online Art information and helpful articles to Artists Worldwide. Read on to find out more....
So if you have an interest in Art, why not visit my Step by Step Art website, there may be some tiny nugget of advice found within these pages that helps save the life of a drawing or painting! Please feel free to share this article with other Arty friends and if anyone has any interesting Articles that they wish to submit for the site, please get in touch, I would love to hear from you!
