Drawing and painting are therapeutic, creative, educational and above all, hugely enjoyable occupations. My Studio (just 35 mins. from Rennes) is open to visitors all year round and you are welcome to enjoy the 2 hour (1-2-1) highly acclaimed art sessions that I hold (indoors and outdoors) during the year.

The time of year encourages ages artists to take to their pencils, pens, brushes and etc., so that they can create a permanent record of what they have seen, for others to enjoy.

My artworks range in size from Greeting Card upwards: from work executed on high grade art paper to fully primed and stretched canvas. The materials I use are Artists’ quality – watercolours, oils, acrylics and inks.
It is useful to have a photographic record of the works of art you have for sale. These can be A4 size, printed in colour on good quality photographic paper and placed into clear plastic folders, with the artwork visible on one side of the folder and details and the price of the work, on the other side. Remember to have a copyright stamp on all your photographed artwork and that all the works bear your signature.
Keep a notepad to hand for commission, etc., queries and contact numbers. And, remember to respond to these enquiries, Sometimes the most discreet queries come from the most important clients.
This is a more or less accidental piece that I started on by flicking diluted masking fluid randomly onto a page onto a page. Next, I painted in the background (leaving the masking fluid intact) with washes of bright washes of acrylic paints, to which I then added copious handfuls of salt. When the background was fully dry, I rubbed off the masking fluid with the tips of my fingers, to see what was below.
I saw that the splashes of masking fluid has left daisy like patterns all over the page, so I simply filled in the centres with an
appropriate yellow, plus some cadmium orange and voila…..”A View of Daisies”
Artists tend to be a little quirky!.
By Artists, I include all those involved in the creative process, i.e. artists, painters, sculpters, musicians, actors, singers. and sportspeople We do not tend to be l00% predictable (unless we chose to be) , nor indeed 100% conventional and again, not unless that is our choice.
Much of our work may meet the needs and expectations of the paying public, but every now and again, we are permitted to uleash a different way of approaching our work
As an example of this type of “difference”, I have shown here an ink and wash illustration of a young woman. However, to it, I have added the dimension of dreams. Flowers and little creatures emerge from around her and a tiny dragon sits on the artist’s hand. The sitter’s face is illuminated by a variety of colours and her lips are touched up in the colours of France.
