I am delighted to have been asked to do a demonstration to Royston Arts Society on Friday 13 May from 8-10pm.
The organiser, Mike, has been really wonderful and the planning has taken a long time. My paintings are very detailed and I use a lot of brushes designed for miniature painting, a lot of these are made by ProArte and come in tiny sizes such as 5/0. I do use larger brushes for the initial stages, painting the sky and background but when it comes to painting the leaves and flowers and other details out come the really tiny ones.
When I am painting the tiny detail, I have a brush for each colour to keep the colours fresh which means I carry 6 or 7 brushes in my left hand while I paint with another in my right hand.
All this detail would not be seen by an audience especially as I work on a flat surface as I need to keep my hand steady. So the Royston Arts committee got together and bought a camera and projector. I think that is amazing. Really looking forward to my demonstration.
The photos show details of two paintings I will be working on.
