1. Drawing tutorial

This month’s tutorial is all about Drawing Ellipses and continues my Drawing essentials series.

Watch the video now

2. Exhibitions, courses and things to see

If you didn’t catch the live stream of the Natural History Museum, with Jackie Morris and Spell Songs concert in aid of the Urban nature project, then watch it now on YouTube.

3. Materials

This one is a sneaky plug! But if you haven’t seen my Super short videos that I released in April using my Xcut Xpress to ‘Print and Reveal’ drypoint etchings and a lino print then you weren’t one of the 2 thousand people that viewed my video!

The YouTube algorithm went awry and there was my 15 minutes of fame!

But they are a sneaky peek into what I’ve been up to at home recently.
