Children and charcoal with Artists in the Making

The other day i went along with Jordanna from Artists in the Making to a school in Sheffield to carry out a project with year 2. We had a giant roll of paper and a lot of charcoal. Groups of about 6 kids worked on each landscape drawing and this is what happened...

Boulder Brighton Climbing Centre

Good luck to Boulder Brighton! For such a long time Brighton has needed its very own wall and it looks great. In celebration of the centre opening i dropped off my Black Sail drawing before i left Brighton so it will be on display there for a little while too.

The climbing wall will be open from this Saturday at noon.

A few days in Snowdonia

Arrived back to Sheffield yesterday after spending a few lovely days stomping up and down the rugged mountains of North Wales. A group of us stayed at which is run by a fantastic couple who are so full of stories and anecdotes you would never believe how old they actually are!

This photo was the only view we really got the whole way up to Crib Goch and the Snowdon horseshoe. For the rest of the time we could only see about 10 metres in front of ourselves, if that! But none-the-less it was an exhilarating and thoroughly enjoyable scramble.

Saturday we went up the north ridge of Tryfan and then on our last day we went for a 'brisk' walk in the quarries. I picked up some beautiful pieces of slate with a new project in mind. Back in the studio now ready for action. Watch this space

drawing Derwent Edge, The Peak District

When i left Brighton my lovely friends made me an unusual pack of playing cards. Made up from lots of different packs, they wrote ideas and quotes and things to do on each card. Today i sat and drew Derwent edge and then found some orange trees in the woods.
