Mixed media on canson moulin du oy 300gsm (140lb) 'not' 100% cotton watercolour paper
Demonstration painting (for 1 hour) at Patchings Art Festival 2015
What a friendly bunch of professional there are surrounding and involved with the Patchings Art Festival at Calverton near Nottingham.
It was an absolute privilege to be demonstrating in the big marquee at Patchings a little earlier this year showing lots of creative techniques that are possible on Canson moulin du Roy 300gsm (140lb) 'not' 100% cotton watercolour paper - a fabulous paper...as you can see especially for my mixed media demonstration painting of Malham Cove in the Yorkshire Dales!
Making a start with Derwent water soluble graphite blocks and pastels
Being a cotton and cellulose paper the unique qualities of this paper and many more besides created by Canson are just perfect for artistic expression.
It was a delight to express my artistic direction and share lots of creative techniques with everyone that's for sure!
|Working with Winsor & Newton Gouache and watercolour, Liquitex Acrylic Inks - letting the creativity just flow!

Finally, a big thanks to the organisers of Patchings and to 'The Artist' magazine and Canson team mates - without your support and professional organisation none of this would have been possible - cheers!
Roll on the next art festival! That too is going to be a really special one!
