What's New?

Happy Groundhog Day,While for most of us every day has felt like Groundhog Day for the past year, some super tenacious artists I know have been busy experimenting and being creative as artists are prone to do.

Sketchers like Vincent Desplanche who prefers not to sketch "where it's comfortable" but would much rather sketch perched on a windy crag where the view is best. And this is exactly what Vincent did to create his new online Mountain Sketching Workshop so that the rest of us could study his techniques from the comfort of our studios. Vincent's sketch-along workshop filmed on location at an altitude of 3000 ft. near Ercé, France includes two demos, tons of tips and tricks and 30 additional examples of his work.

Our friend Ian Fennelly is launching new LIVE Sketch Paris Workshops. During these 3-hour LIVE events Ian will teach you his process for creating beautiful sketches with his usual joie de vie and will answer your questions between each step. Participation includes a link to the recorded online workshop after the event.  Click HERE to learn more. Registration closes 2 days before each event date.

Ian launched this new series with a FREE 1-hour LIVE Sketch Notre Dame Demo on February 21. Click HERE to see the finished sketch.

Even more news--Hazel Soan, world renowned painter and bestselling author of numerous highly regarded art tutorial books including Learn to Paint People Quickly, will be teaching a LIVE online Figure Painting Workshop on February 27 at 9:00am EST.
