A breath of creative fresh air...


A sketch at a favourite location of mine high above Grosmont in the North York Moors National Park.

Took my students there from Cober Hill whilst on a weeks residential sketching and painting holiday last year near Scarborough before dropping down to the lovely 'steam train' village for a nice cup of tea and a cake with everyone! 

I love the speed and simplicity of using marker pens with a dash of watercolour - you can quickly visually interpret so much in rapid time in a really relaxing way with no added pressure and just enjoy the physicality of drawing in colour directly in the landscape - fab!

To be featured in 'The Artist' magazine (December '16) issue with a focussed article all about the joys of using marker pens in a bold and direct way to improve your colour awareness and drawing skills.

Come and join me for the next art holiday at Cober Hill sketching along the Yorkshire Heritage Coast - it's going to be fab!
