The Sunday Sketchpad…Public Liability

As the time draws nearer to the Guild Society of Artists exhibition, and with other public selling ventures planned, I need to find some public liability cover. The best deal so far seems to be from Simply Business…£78.84 for the year. Does any other artist have any experience they would care to share on such a matter>

On the fun side…voting is still open for the competition. Please share the link below.

The Sunday Sketchpad – How to try a different artistic style

eZy Watermark_17-02-2019_06-04-35pm

We all get into our own comfort zones don’t we? However, comfort and familiarity are not places where growth occurs. If you want to grow, learn and get better as an artist, you need to be bold and try something new. My work is normally very detailed and precise in nature. This takes time to create a painting in this way. I also rarely paint nudes.

So, I thought I would challenge myself this Sunday and try painting a nude, in watercolour (not oil) and importantly…in 12 minutes and not 12 hours!

What do you think? It turned out alright really and I might list it on Artfinder and see what happens. Be bold, be brief…be gone!
