2020 Art Workshops
I am currently in the process of organising this years art workshops and will be included in the winter newsletter which will be Emailed out to subscribers hopefully by the end of this month. All details will be posted on the step by step art CHESTERFIELD WORKSHOP page once available and added to social media pages for this site & my KMB social media pages too, ensuring a larger audience reach.
Every year I choose 3 or 4 subjects for the Coloured pencil & Graphite pencil workshops which include varying techniques and surfaces to previous years, ensuring each workshop is different to another. Coloured pencil workshops using textured paper are somewhat easier for a complete beginner than the workshops working on smooth paper, however every workshop available can be attended by any artist regardless of their calibre, even if they have NEVER drawn anything since their time at school!

Although I own 3 different blenders and a burnisher myself, I forgot I had them and it gave me a great opportunity to try them all out and compare them, sharing with everyone my thoughts and findings.
If you are looking to find out what blenders & burnishers can offer you as a Coloured pencil Artist, or are new to blenders/burnishers and would like to know what they can achieve and how best to use them, why not take a look at this article - I was surprised to learn you can actually use them with Graphite pencils too, although have not tried it myself.

The SAA contacted me in 2015 asking if I would like to be a contributor to the Q & A section in their quarterly magazine 'PAINT'. Being a Professional Artist (PA) of the SAA, I like to get involved wherever possible and sent through some questions and answers that I have been asked often as a Coloured pencil Artist & Art Tutor and these have been included in their latest Magazine (p.31 for those with their own magazine) It answers the following popular questions:
