Do you have a favourite kind of fruit?
Mine is Clingstone peaches and nectarines, and maybe cherries. I love most fruit actually. Did you know that the vast majority of fruit are pollinated by honey bees? Almost all fruit were flowers at first. It is a bit dreary, grey and damp in my neck of the woods, so I thought I'd create a cheery artwork in praise of the humble honey bee. A daily mini project inspired by flying insects and pollinators will be included in the next Explore Colour onllne course.
If you would like to get a glimpse of my creative process, and are interested in doing the Creative Leap Course that will start on 1 February, you can follow me on INSTAGRAM where I will be doing a live demo at 4PM GMT. This can be viewed for 24 hours afterwards
The course consists of 26 daily mini projects that are inspired by the alphabet, letter shapes and individual handwriting. The themes range to cover all sorts of topics and are suitable for all levels of ability. Four bigger weekend projects will focus on using a variety of art materials and techniques. If you would like more info on the course please see the Kickstart blog post of 1 January. Registration is open until 28 January.
Check out my ETSY shop over the next few days if you are interested in smaller original paintings. I will be adding a fresh collection work that is available for global shipping.
