Hey there my friends I hope you’re all keeping well. Can’t quite believe we’re already in May, this year seems to be whizzing by. For a while I felt like I was balancing plates, so many things all going on at the same time and finding it difficult to balance things out so to speak. So what do you do when this happens? Well it seems I sit and doodle lol, and yep sure enough, in no time at all, things settle down and seem to achieve an equilibrium all by themselves. As for the resulting doodle – I have plans for this as an underpainting for something else. So nothing wasted, time or materials. Faith in ourselves and our ability to deal with things, big and small, comes from being in a place where all you can do is have faith it seems.

This week I’m pleased to be able to let you know that my art workshop this month will be the Puffin in Acrylic. This was originally due to take place in February but had to be postponed due to Covid. But now we’re good to go and I’d love to see you there. It’s due to run on Saturday 28th May at the Martin Mere Wetland Centre, more information can be found below or by clicking on one of the following links 😊

So a quick update here; so after my Zoom meeting with a Derwent representative I’ve been invited to be a Derwent Ambassador, this is a very exciting prospect. I haven’t said yes yet as I haven’t read the small print so to speak. But you’ll be the first to know as this professional relationship evolves 😉

On My Easel

Pied Wagtail in Acrylic

So the past couple of weeks I’ve had a painting on my easel that I’ve been restoring for a client. An interesting time, that allowed me to put my existing skill set to the test. I’m very pleased, and somewhat relieved, to say that all went well and the painting is now back with it’s owner and looking like new 😊 Not the kind of work I’d want too often though lol.

Next on my easel was this little Pied Wagtail. Working from my own reference images I sketched this little guy onto some spare printer paper, managing to sketch a little larger than first planned (and like I did when I was younger I had to Sellotape two pieces together lol). Setting the completed sketch to one side I began to plan out my background for this piece. I then applied washes of acrylic paint to my 14″ x 10″ canvas, softening the background a little by airbrushing a lighter mix of colour. I could have achieved this look with a brush but it’s just quicker using an airbrush and thinned down paint. My next step was to transfer my initial sketch and I did this using a white trace-down paper, then I began to block in colour refining the shapes along the way, as you can see in the above photograph. Hopefully my next newsletter will include the finished image and I’ll have something new on my easel to show you.

For the love of Uganda

Calling all artists, would you like to take your love for art and wildlife one step further? Then why not join me on safari in Uganda this coming September?

Subscriber Question

Q. How can I add depth to a pastel painting?

A. Adding depth to any painting, whatever the medium, can sometimes be a challenge, especially if you’re not working from a reference image with a decent amount of depth in it. A few simple ways to add depth to a project: Having an area, whether that’s the foreground or the background that is out of focus, and gradually (beginning at the subject) decrease the amount of ‘in focus’ detail as you move towards the area that you want to be out of focus. Another way is by increasing the contrast in one part of the painting and decreasing it in other parts, such as the background. Areas with a high contrast will look closer to the viewer. Another way of increasing depth is in the use of colour, cool colours look further away whilst warm colours look closer to the viewer. I hope this information helps you. My Hedgehog in Pastel video uses all three techniques to achieve a feeling of depth.

I may not always have a video on my YouTube channel to go alongside a subscriber’s question, but when I do I’ll be sure to add it.

Okay I’ll sign off for now and grab some lunch before heading back to my easel. If you have time I’d love for you to connect with me on social media and show me the projects you’re working on at the moment.

Thank you once again my friends for spending some time with me today, and please feel free to leave a question or suggestion in the contact form below.

Wishing you all the best, until next time, as always, stay safe and stay creative, Kerry xXx

happy easter card

Sorry if you’ve already received this email – I keep getting a message saying this hasn’t been sent 🙄 So just attempting to share this one again to be on the safe side 😉

Hey there my friends I hope you’re all keeping well and finding some time to be creative. For those of you who celebrate Easter may I take this opportunity in wishing you a truly wonderful Easter weekend filled with love and blessings in abundance. I’m going to be spending the weekend with family, away from my easel for a few days, but hopefully not too far away from a sketchbook and some travel watercolours (somehow they always manage to find their way into my luggage lol).

This week has been busy time in my studio – the completion of another commission and a small watercolour painting of a Kingfisher (this will be the subject for this month’s watercolour workshop, due to run on Sat 30th April at the Martin Mere Wetland Centre. Plus I have taken on some extra work in the form of restoring an original painting – something that wont be shared in my newsletter, however they’ll be plenty more goodies coming this way 😊

Latest News

Not a lot for this section this week, I have been talking with the global marketing manager from Derwent but I can’t elaborate more on this just yet.

Some good news that I can share is that I know have video footage on my pc for three new YouTube videos, one watercolour, one acrylic and one pastel. I will start to edit the footage over the next couple of weeks and thereafter add the voice overs so that they can then be added to my YouTube channel 😉 You’ll be the first to know as soon as they go live.

On My Easel

Completed this little watercolour sample painting today 15.04.2022

So this new section ‘On My Easel’ first made it’s appearance in my previous newsletter and has proved to be a success, so it will stay a regular feature from now on 😊

As I mentioned earlier in this newsletter I’ve completed the two above projects this week. Once back home from visiting family (which will be next Tues or Wed) I’ll begin the restoration of a painting for a client. After which I’ll move on to begin my next commission, plus I’ve a couple of paintings to varnish (will video this process and will upload to my YouTube channel for anyone who may be interested.

Subscriber Question

Q. Is it okay to work in different art mediums or should I just stick to one?

A. This is going to be a subject that differs very much between individuals. I personally love being able to move between mediums. For instance finishing a pastel project and then setting up for a project in acrylic gives my mind a quick spring clean, and the change of medium stops that ‘repetitive feeling’ setting in. I work in many mediums, many of which can be viewed on my YouTube channel. I’ll be adding more soon including graphite and charcoal. So in short, if you fancy trying something new, I say go for it.

Below is a little 34 second video showing some of the mediums I enjoy working with 😉

I may not always have a video on my YouTube channel to go alongside a subscriber’s question, but when I do I’ll be sure to add it.

Okay I’m going to have to finish here for today as my tummy is rumbling lol.

Hey there my friends I hope you’re all keeping well and enjoying a relaxing weekend. I was hoping to get out and about and enjoy the sunshine, but alas I’ve too much to do in the studio so the sunshine will have to wait for another day, not complaining though as a busy studio keeps me happy and out of mischief lol.

After speaking to my latest workshop participants it’s become apparent that an additional section to my newsletter, that would be appreciated, would be an ‘On My Easel’ section (thank you to Louise for this suggestion) hence the above teaser photo 😉

So a change is as good as a rest they say, not sure who originally said this, but in the world of art (my world of art to be precise) it’s definitely true. Very rarely do I get ‘artist block’ and I believe one of the reasons for this is that I work in multiple mediums. Preparing for workshops in three separate mediums ensures there’s never time to get bored with one alone, plus interchanging (is that a real word) projects on my easel means that I’m looking at something with fresh eyes weekly, if not sometimes daily. Don’t know what prompted me to say this but there you have it, maybe it’s just that someone needed to read this today 😉

Okay so what’s new news from this end? Well I’m soooooooo (definitely not a real word lol) excited to announce that Venture Uganda have added dates to their diary (and mine) for a second Art Safari in Uganda 16th February – 3rd March 2023 and for an amazing price of £4,775 The owner of this Ugandan based company is the lovely Lesley Harris and she’s more than happy to answer any questions you may have. You’ll find her contact details below if you wish to call her or email here – I know she’d love to hear from you 😊

I’m finally in talks with a UK based fine art reproduction company so it shouldn’t be too long now until my prints will be available, I can’t wait to update my gallery pages with the links. I’ve also purchased a beautiful mount cutter – the Logan 350-1. I haven’t had chance to get him (yes I know I tend to personalise my purchases far too much lol) out of his box yet, but I’ve seen these mount cutters in action so am thrilled to have this as an addition to my studio. Updates on all of this soon.

On My Easel

Okay so as promised here’s a little peek into my studio and what’s on my easel at the moment 😊

Today we have a black Labrador in pastel on Clairefontaine Pastelmat paper. Lots of work to do on this one yet, including another row of books for the background, patterned carpet for the foreground and obviously those lovely legs to go in yet. I’m working from photos supplied by my client this time.

Subscriber Question

Q. I’m having difficulty getting white fur to look real in pastel, any advice please?

A. Hi there, creating realistic fur in any medium is always about using layers, and white fur is no different. Remembering that white fur is reflective helps, this means that anything naturally white will be reflecting colours in the subject’s surroundings so that the colour white will be used sparingly.

White Fur in Pastel is a little video that runs at around 1hr 20mins showing and explaining my process in creating the look of white fur. I hope to make more videos soon on how to create white fur in other mediums, however the principle will remain the same even though the techniques will vary upon the medium chosen. I hope this helps.

I may not always have a video on my YouTube channel to go alongside a subscriber’s question, but when I do I’ll be sure to add it.

Q. Do fixatives really work with pastel and charcoal?

A. I can thoroughly recommend the spray fixative by Loxley. It does exactly what it says on the can. Always remember to try these types of spray on a spare piece of paper before applying to your completed project.

Loxley Fixative on Pastels is a little 30 minute video showing and explaining my process in which I spray between layers and to protect the finished project, I have since applied it to graphite and charcoal drawings and it works perfectly. I hope this helps.

I may not always have a video on my YouTube channel to go alongside a subscriber’s question, but when I do I’ll be sure to add it.

Latest News

I’m so pleased to announce that as well as running a new series of art workshops at Martin Mere Wetland Centre this year, I’ve also been asked to demonstrate for the world renowned art materials manufacturers Caran d’Ache at this years Patching’s Art Festival in July. This will be my 12th year demonstrating their wonderful products, thrilled as always 😊 This festival is open to the public with many demonstrators working across all four days and many ‘hands on’ exhibits for visitors to try. Well worth a visit if you love art and haven’t been before, and if you have been before I’ll see you there 😉

Another venue for me in July will be the Exhibition of Wildlife Art on the Wirral, Liverpool. I’m blessed to have been invited to exhibit for the 4th or 5th year running (sorry I’ve lost count lol) I’d been invited for several years running prior to attending, but the dates always clashed with other bookings. Anyway more news on this in my next newsletter.

Subscriber Question – how can I create fine detail lines with acrylic paint?

A. There are many ways of utilizing acrylic paint and a lot can depend on not only the paint you are using but the brushes too. If you are already using ‘liquid acrylics’ then it may be that you’re using the wrong style of brush. A long pointed brush such as a liner brush or rigger brush is perfect. The length of the bristles allows the brush to hold more pigment and can therefore achieve a longer detailed line or lines. If you are using normal acrylics then add a little more water until you have the consistency of milk, then roll your brush into the paint and practise your brush strokes on a scrap piece of paper. Play with the paint to water ratio and brush techniques to find what best suits you and your requirements, as these will differ between individuals.

This Chromacolour Liquid Acrylics video may be a useful watch whatever acrylics you are using at the moment, I hope this helps.

I may not always have a video on my YouTube channel to go alongside a subscriber’s question, but when I do I’ll be sure to add it.

Hey there my friends I hope you’re all keeping well and that 2022 is turning into a year of creative possibilities for you.

A friend of mine recently asked me why she isn’t seeing much, if any, improvement in her paintings (something we can all experience from time to time), however when I looked at her paintings I could definitely see her progress, and once pointed out to her she could see it too. It’s much like putting a droplet of water into a bowl each day, we wouldn’t notice the change, just believe that the level is rising and before you know it your bowl will overflow. If you can relate to this, be easy on yourself and remember my mantra – practise makes progress, not perfection 😉

‘LATEST NEWS’

I was hoping to have an update of my latest commission for you this weekend, unfortunately that wont be happening due to user error (yep me) – major error forced me to bin the first one. Hey these things happen, so I’ve sketched it out again and I’m ready to begin. If anyone says ‘things never go wrong in my studio’ take that with a pinch of salt. I guess that’s one of the downsides of social media – we only ever see the the good stuff, never see the messes, mishaps and mistakes.

Hoping to have a commission update within the next couple of weeks. Having family to stay this coming week so not likely to get very much studio time but we’ll see.

Subscriber Question – how do I transfer my sketch onto velour pastel paper as it is too thick to use with my lightbox, thank you.

A. Thank you Emilly for your question. This is a simple one to answer, all you need is your sketch and an empty biro or embossing tool, watch the beginning of this video Feathers – Pastel on Velour, it’s easy to follow and only takes a few minutes.

I may not always have a video on my YouTube channel to go alongside a subscriber’s question, but when I do I’ll be sure to add it.

Okay that’s it for this weekend, I’ve family coming to stay for a week so better get busy finishing off my emails etc before they arrive – and obviously that will no doubt include copious amounts of coffee lol.

Hey there my friends I hope you’re all keeping well and creative, for those of you that do… and for those of you that don’t – why not give it a try 😉

I’m pleased to say that this little Puffin in acrylics is now complete. This will be the subject for my Wildlife Art Workshop later this month (Sat 26th February to be exact) at the Martin Mere Wetland Centre.

Obviously some things in my newsletter are repeated. These items, usually workshop & Uganda related, are for the benefit of new subscribers. However, do keep reading them as I will be adding things to these slots as they arise. As in new dates, mediums and tours etc.

Now with my Snow Leopard painting finished and the Puffin painting complete, I can turn my attention back to my commissions, for a while at least; and that’s what I’ll be working on tomorrow. I’ll post an image of my latest commission in next week’s newsletter.

I also have another large acrylic painting in mind, one that is definitely ‘Uganda inspired’ 😉 I’ll begin sharing it with you all once it reaches my easel.

Subscriber Question – Please help, I had an airbrush for Christmas and now it doesn’t work. What should I do?

A. Okay this was a question emailed to me last week. After a little correspondence, back and forth, it turned out that the lady in question had been using her airbrush since receiving it as a gift for Christmas, but hadn’t been cleaning it. I was surprised it had lasted this long. I talked her through the process of stripping and cleaning it and thankfully it’s back to full working order. So I decided to make a little ten minute video on the subject.

See the video How to dismantle & clean your airbrush, easy to follow and only takes a few minutes to keep your airbrush in tip top condition.

I may not always have a video on my YouTube channel to go alongside a subscriber’s question, but when I do I’ll be sure to add it.

Well it’s that time of the day again when my stomach starts to tell me that I need to stop work and head for the kitchen, at least for a coffee or three lol.

Subscriber Question – Is there an inexpensive way of trying pastels but still getting plenty of colours?

A. Well I’m sure this question, regardless of medium, resonates with many of us. You’d like to try a new medium but don’t want to be restricted to just a couple of colours because of the cost. My answer for this one is simple – I’d recommend you getting a small box (24 colours) of Koh-I-Noor soft pastels and give them a try. I reviewed them and can thoroughly recommend them.

See the video Koh-I-Noor Soft Pastels, you can even use a little water with them.

I may not always have a video on my YouTube channel to go alongside a subscriber’s question, but when I do I’ll be sure to add it. Here’s a link for the Koh-I-Noor Soft Pastels if you’d like to take a look.

You are your only limit unknown

Hey there my friends I hope you’re all having a relaxing weekend. Wow this past week has simply flown by, it’s been a productive one but has gone by far too quickly.

Yesterday I had the privilege of running a, what I hope will be the first of many, wildlife art workshop over at Martin Mere Wetland Centre. I’d like to thank Caroline, Wendy, Sandra, Matthew, Anne, Louise, Jonathan and Alison (the participants) for attending and supporting this new venture for Martin Mere; and for your eagerness for more dates – news of which I hope to be able to share soon.

Well it looks as though, all being well, 2022 will be the year of artistic adventures and endless possibilities, as interest in the Art Safari to Uganda has begun to build. Check out the full itinerary for more information, and if you have any questions then please feel free to contact Lesley who’s looking forward to hearing from you.

I promised yesterday’s workshop participants that I’d share a little review of this amazing studio light!

I’d listened to a few artists rave about this light but I still had my doubts, so I ordered one for myself (after all I could have sent it back were I not happy with it). It arrived the following day, last Monday to be exact, and I wasted no time in unboxing it and clamping it to my easel… OH MY WORD this light is a game changer!!! The two tube lights that can be positioned independently, and each tube has four different brightness settings too! I’m literally blown away. I can even work at night now without the need for any other light source in my studio, it’s simply that amazing I just had to share. It is literally the only studio light that I’ll be using from now on.

I’ve attached a link to this DUOLAMP if you’d like to take a look, via my Amazon affiliate account, please feel free to click, browse and shop if you want at no extra cost to you 😉

Subscriber Question – I have some watercolours and have been given some watercolour pencils. Can I use them both together or will it look wrong if I do?

A. I actually love combining traditional watercolours with watercolour pencils for many reasons. More colours for less money is one reason I’d recommend them, also if you’re wanting to do some outdoor sketching then they’re great too, you can add water to your sketch once you’re back home and go from sketch to a painting in one easy step.

See the Watercolour & Gouache supplies I use and therefore recommend.

I may not always have a video on my YouTube channel to go alongside a subscriber’s question, but when I do I’ll be sure to add it. Here’s a link for the Giraffe in Watercolour if you’d like to take a look.

Well that’s enough rambling for me for one day, I’m off to get a drink and some lunch, followed by an hour or so of emailing. Then hopefully this afternoon I’ll get some quality easel time before dinner, a film and then bed lol.

Thank you for spending some time with me today. As always please feel free to leave a suggestion or question in the contact form below.

All being well next week’s newsletter will be back to landing in your inbox on a Saturday.

Art is never finished, merely abandoned. – Leonardo da Vinci

Happy Saturday everyone, I hope you’re all keeping well and have something lovely planned for this weekend. I’ll be working my snow leopard painting to completion, all being well, later today. It may roll over into tomorrow, if so then that’s okay by me too. I’m painting the final details of the foreground now, quite a relaxing process to be honest, listening to a podcast or YouTube while I work keeps me on track. I’m not one for working in complete silence as my mind has a tendency to wander far too much lol.

This time next week I’ll be over at Martin Mere Wetland Centre teaching the first, in what we hope to be, a brand new series of Wildlife Art Workshops, starting with watercolour. Wow the weeks have simply flown by since this date was set for Saturday 22nd January ’22, and all being well I’ll soon have the following dates to share with you all, in case this date was one you couldn’t attend.

A quick recap – All of my courses are beginner friendly and 50% of all proceeds go straight back into conservation via the WWT (Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust). Thinking of starting a new hobby or refreshing an old one? Then come and join us, beginners welcomed!.

Subscriber Question – I love working with coloured pencils but they are just so slow. Is there anyway of speeding up the process?

A. I too love working with coloured pencil and fully understand why sometimes it would be nice to hurry the process along a little. The two techniques I turn to are using toned paper and a solvent. You can use one of these or both. Toned paper means you now don’t need to add a background but the painting still looks complete, and the solvent helps to achieve a richer look without tons of layering. I believe my Red Panda video should be helpful to you.

See the Coloured Pencil Supplies I use and therefore recommend.

I may not always have a video on my YouTube channel to go alongside a subscriber’s question, but when I do I’ll be sure to add it. Here’s a link for the Coloured Pencil on Toned Paper if you’d like to take a look.

Okay I’ll leave it at that for now as my tummy is rumbling which means it’s lunch time already. Don’t quite know where this morning has gone lol.

Next weeks newsletter will probably land in your inbox next Sunday due to the fact that I’ll be teaching next Saturday.
