Christmas Commissions

As some stores are very prematurely reminding us, Christmas is starting to creep up on the calendar! Every year I am swamped with tons of requests for commissions at this time and sadly end up having to turn down a good chunk simply due to lack of time. So this year I am trying to get a jump start to prevent having to disappoint my lovely potential clients! I'm offering anyone that subscribes to my monthly newsletter a 10% discount* on all custom commissions!

All you have to do is mention the following code in the message: 2015CHRISTMAS

Creative Tips  From Artist to Artist   In this section you will get a tip relating to anything art!    Try using a coloured "background" in your art next time you whip out your paint or other coloured tools. If you are using coloured pencils or pastels, use a coloured piece of paper, or paint your canvas a solid coloured tone before you build on with more layers. This sets the atmosphere of your artwork and helps keep the entire piece cohesive.  To give you an example, a recent piece that I have been working on started off with me painting the entire canvas a warm red-brown colour. Even though most of the subjects of the painting are to be white, they all have this amazing warm life to them now thanks to the base of colour. Give it a try!
