A rare opportunity to work at this stunning location…
The exhibition at Sproson Gallery, South Street, St Andrews, is now open, and will run until 31st March. Hope you can make it along there, then let me know what you think of my new watercolour paintings of St Andrews. There’s one in the front window and another six inside (you can see my paintings on this page: https://sprosongallery.com/collections/all?page=5).
To kick start your creativity in 2020, here’s some exciting new painting workshops at the fabulous J&G Innes in St Andrews to get you up and running. You may not be aware, but the popular bookstore and gift shop also has an excellent, bright studio and gallery space upstairs, and that’s where we’ll be. You’ll need to bring your art materials, but you’ll receive a 10% discount if you buy these in store http://www.jg-innes.co.uk/. Each workshop is £50, 10am-4pm with an hour for you to have your lunch (tea and coffee making facilities available throughout the day). Don’t worry if you lack creative confidence – all workshops are supportive and fun with a mixture of demonstrations, instruction and positive feedback:
January 25th – Watercolour Basics – putting skills into practice
February 15th – Pastel & Coloured Pencil – combining dry materials
March 21st – Watercolour Plus – exploring different styles and adding different mediums
April 18th – Perspective & Composition – understanding the fundamentals, and applying to your own artwork.
This is hot of the press, so more details to follow. Places are limited, so book up early!
If you’re on vacation in Fife, and lucky enough to be staying in one of the three five-star properties on the superb fifty five acre Hawkswood Country Estate, no doubt you’ll have seen the wide range of facilities they offer. In addition, you can choose from a wide range of local activities, such as attending one of my art tuition opportunities – perfect for non-golfing partners, for example. Take away a wonderful painting, created in Fife – by you! Just speak with your concierge, who will be able to arrange this with you directly.
Great to see you all at the Hill of Tarvit Christmas Fayre. This wonderful venue in Fife was home to twenty three artists and makers for the weekend – of which I was one! It was great to be a part of the event – many thanks to Geraldine for the superb organisation, and all the staff for their support.
