A few recent news items....

* UK art magazine Artists & Illustrators Magazine decided to publish my article on how to paint fabrics (which was published in the magazine last year) online in a 4-part series. 

See here for part one and come back tomorrow for the next instalment:


* A recent sketch of a Rembrandt Self Portrait in my sketchbook:


Tomorrow sees the start of the Birmingham Society of Artists' exhibition at the RBSA Gallery in Brooke Street, Birmingham. It is on until 24 August and prize winners will be announced on Thursday. There are some brilliant portraits on show, so it is worth visiting if you are in the area.

Here's a sneaky pic before the 'hang':

* Honiton/BP Travel

I have visited Honiton in Devon recently to study their lace history, but I'll write a seperate blog post about that soon. Bruges in Belgium is booked and so is my trip to The Netherlands! Literary research still going on, pile of books is growing....brushes in the background fairly unused....
