Book review by Katherine Tyrrell, of Notes for the Atelier

I was delighted to read Katherine Tyrrell's review of my book. Katherine writes one of the most popular art blogs in the UK, and I have worked with her in the past, and was pleased to see her at the filming of Sky Portrait Artist of the Year in Battersea Arts Centre. (She was very encouraging there - it's amazing the difference it makes to a stressfull experience when you see a face you know, and they say nice things!!)

BBC4 Life Drawing Feb 4th

This coming Tuesday I am delighted that my studio will be part of the first live nation-wide life drawing session, on BBC4 with Lachlan Goudie.

Last week's life class at BARA

Drawing the human form is a very centering experience (after all, we are drawing that most familiar of things - ourselves) and I think everyone should try it. More than once!

Details of the programme are here

It's a pilot programme, to encourage people to get their paper and pencils out at home and join in, following the live model on the screen.

Try to tune in!

Next workshops at BARA this Friday 7th February 6 - 8 pm portrait drawing and
Saturday 8th February Portrait drawing 10.30 - 5pm
