Recently I’ve been talking with the Peregrini Landscape Partnership, which works with the Northumberland Trust to protect and conserve wildlife. I’ll be offering a day’s workshop in painting at some point this year for the Peregrini project, in response to the Isle of Lindisfarne in Northumbria, so let me know if that’s of interest to you.
The workshop will include some practical drawing techniques before we head out into the landscape to paint. It should be fun as I encourage a loose, experimental approach (so-called mistakes aren’t possible, to my mind it’s all part of the process!)
Last year I offered the The Berwickshire and North Northumberland Coast European Marine Site 25% of proceeds from prints of my paintings of Lindisfarne, and you can view or buy mounted prints of those on this link –
The series includes prints of the Isle of Eigg, the Borders and the Bass Rock, with each print donating 25% to a conservation trust related to the landscape painted.
I’m still working on my ‘Blue’ series, but my studio windows are being fixed so I’ve been a bit thwarted as far as painting goes in the past few days!
