The latest articles available at www.stepbystepart.co.uk
I have some great news: I've created an art-focused website catering to beginners and experienced artists. You can visit www.stepbystepart.co.uk to read the latest articles and explore my art workshops and tutoring. Recently, I uploaded four new articles that might interest you - especially if you enjoy working with coloured pencils. However, if you prefer graphite or watercolours, there's something for you too! You can learn about tonal paper and how it can enhance your work, try the tonal layering exercise with your pencils, and even explore the benefits of HP watercolour papers. These resources will be helpful in your artistic pursuits.
New articles coming soon to Step by Step Art
Unfortunately, I could not send out the Winter Newsletter due to being occupied with commission work in December. However, I am thrilled to announce that I will release four new articles at the start of May. These articles will provide valuable insights on soft pastels, specifically Unison pastels, and a step-by-step guide for those new to pastel art on creating a tonal sky. Additionally, there will be two "Starting Out" articles. The first, written by Welsh Artist Chris Chalk, will focus on the three essential items necessary to begin your oil painting journey. The second, written by myself, will offer guidance on starting with coloured pencils. If you want to receive the Step by Step Art newsletter, you can find more information about it here. Keep yourself informed by subscribing today to get the latest updates.
1 Day Art Workshops in Chesterfield, Derbyshire
I will be hosting unique 1-day workshops beginning in May that will teach participants how to create complex artwork using coloured pencils, graphite pencils, or acrylic paints. There are still a few spots left for those who want to attend one of the four workshops. As always; I will provide frequent demonstrations and personal assistance throughout the day. Attendees will also receive a comprehensive booklet with step-by-step instructions and images to guide them. It's important to note that each workshop only allows a maximum of 10 participants to ensure individual attention and support.

Working as an Art Tutor, I rarely get chance to sit down and produce something for fun and relaxation, however when my Dad decided he wanted Marilyn in his newly decorated room - I dug out the piece I had spent just a couple of hours on at the DOA Exhibition this year and decided to complete it - adding a hint of red (and sparkle!) to compliment the colour tones of his room.
As I love fine detail and realism in my work, I felt I had to improve the details of the poor photographic image that I am working from, and have set to work adding as much detail as possible, and although the Artwork below may appear complete, there is still much more to add. Graphite pencils are such a wonderful medium for portraits, giving such depth and realism to a piece!
