With Katie from Search Press
At a meeting in my studio earlier this year
This week has been the busiest of my life in so many ways. Just when I think I am on top of everything new exciting opportunities come my way and I find it very hard to say no to them!
New Book 2012
I am going to the final photography session for my second book next week. Many paintings are now all ready to be included in each thrilling chapter. This is where I say goodbye to the huge box in my studio and favourite large compositions that will now stay with my publisher until they have been professionally filmed for inclusion.Until now I have been taking my own photographs and sending the layout and text for approval but from here my book gets the experience from specialists in this field. I will also be at a meeting to discuss my book launch in UK and abroad so there is a lot to think about. For now I want to focus purely on what is included. I also want to savour the last few days when I alone know what is going into my book! It is going to feel like Christmas giving so many ideas away that I truly hope will be enjoyed.
There are so many techniques and tips in this publication as I hope to inspire everyone who reads it to adore working in my loose style, painting every single subject in sight. I will keep you updated as soon as I have news of its' release next year and book launch for book signings.
Watercolour Workshops 2012
I now have all the UK dates and workshops for 2012 available. They are to be my next post on my blog today. As promised everyone on my email watercolour workshop list has been forwarded a copy of the dates and sessions so I will be releasing the full information on my web site and blog today.There are some gorgeous new sessions and some wonderful favourites.
I am aware that many artists and friends from all over the world have been eagerly looking forward to their release so the best advise I can offer everyone is to please book early as places disappear very quickly.
It's going to be a very exciting year!
