Inspiration Artist March 2014
These are just plain awesome!
No longer is the pencil the only way to develop smudges ,swipes, tones and contrast. Put these in your kit for travelling and journal sketching .....but beware!!! ....they are addictive ! Great value for 3 in a pack. You just add water.

Pop - Up Workshops 2014 5th April 2- 4pm the NEST Eumundi
|Being creative with our lives can be both a challenge and a new approach to visualising everything around us. Whether we use one hemisphere of our brain as opposed to the other, there is no doubt the possibilities of combining both is an asset to how we can enrich our lives. By learning to identify the relationships between individual colours you can also bring on board ideas and emotions that connect you to an image or feeling you have of a memory or place. The importance of colour in our lives is immense and by beginning to experiment and explore and gain confidence creatively using colour is an eye opening experience not to be missed.
