I've really enjoyed sketching in this small square spiral bound sketchbook. The brown paper is perfect for paintmarkers. Thought you might like to see some of the results.
Yesterday I launched my first ever colouring in competition with a chance to win an urban art bundle. This is open to school age children who must enter the competition through a participating school or arts organisation. It is free to enter and you will get a customised colouring sheet like the one below with your schools name in the banner. For more details click here.
Over the weekend I had the opportunity to paint in my old hometown of Market Deeping as part of the Celebrating Our High Streets initiative. It was a blustery day, dangerously so, so we moved off the high street into an alley full of shops. My board was a little smaller than I was used to so I paced myself in order to fill the whole day with live art. Huge thanks to the organisers for stepping forward and pulling this together at the last minute and for everyone that stopped by to say hello.
As well as my live art there was also free poems being written by Charley Genever and Claire Currie and a stilt walker from Giggle Town Arts to keep the kids amused. Check them out.
