Can't Stop Painting Video!
Join me on a captivating artistic adventure as I revisit and (almost) complete my semi-abstract painting featuring a majestic phoenix soaring into the sky, with a mesmerised girl gazing upward. In this follow-up video, I delve into the intricate world of mixed media, employing a unique blend of oil paints, pastel pencils, oil pastels, and gold ink. Witness the dynamic interplay of colours and textures, as I use a palette knife & glazes to add depth and dimension to the canvas. Navigating the fine line between creation and completion, I share my thoughts on the challenges of deciding when to stop painting. Let the magic unfold as we explore the boundless possibilities of expressive art in this immersive painting process.

Starting A Painting With Inks, Spray Paints & Acrylics! VIDEO!
This painting was inspired by a real stag! I start with a drawing & then go wild with inks, spray paints & acrylics, making a big mess as you'll see! I show you how I use inks & water spray to get colour on the canvas & fill in the blanks! As a mixed media artist, I love starting a painting with various art materials.

Discover the Incredible Outcome of My Very First Artist Date! Week 2 of 'The Artist's Way'
My first artist date has sent me off into a new art adventure after discovering a fashion designer book that got exhibition memories flooding back! I try out a few sketches to get me going & look forward to see where it's going to take me, oh and go for shopping for some new art supplies, where I make my discovery! All this inspired by the 'Artist's Way' book by Julia Cameron where I'm still doing my morning pages.
Unlocking Your Creative Potential: The Artist's Way!
I dug out my Artist's Way book, not because I'm not feeling creative but to keep the flow going! I did this years ago & wanted to offer it to a friend which sparked me to read it again. I'll be creating while chatting, using silver leaf on a painting. Please fee me on this arty adventure, you never know what it might bring!

Sketchbook Cover Makeover & Starting a New Nature Inspired Painting!
I'm getting into my sketchbook, taking it out & about on my walks here in the south of France where I'm finding inspiration in nature!
