New works at Tinker Tailor!

I've just dropped off a bundle of watercolours to the charming Tinker Tailor in Trentham.

Tinker Tailor is a little space for artists and makers and they boast some pretty stunning wares, you can follow this link to their blog and have a little sneak peak.

Tinker Tailor is open Thursday- Sunday and my work will be up for the next month, so if you're in town, or even near by, pop in and have a look.

Watercolour peg studies

I found a bunch of beaten up old wooden pegs and spent last week doing a few watercolour studies.
I enjoyed the process of observational drawing so much making these. Foreshortening decreasing angles and translating the stack of pegs on to paper was a lot of fun.

Even after all these years, I don't think there is a paper that comes close to the Fabriano Artistico 640gsm hot pressed paper. I adore it! 

Here are the studies.

Rags an' old iron

It's been a while since I last posted, but here's what I've been up to...

A couple of Charcoal studies on paper.

These two drawings are studies for an oil painting I'm working on at the moment, here's a sneak peak of the underpainting.
