Supreme Cat Show

To bid on my latest small print click here.
I'm not sure that I'm ready yet for the Supreme, but as it's tomorrow I've run out of time.
I created a new small work today out of the Great Spotted Woodpecker I drew a while ago.
At least it makes a change from cats.

Small Works and another Tabby Cat on Fisher Paper

Above is my latest tabby cat ACEO on Fisher paper. I spent most of my day doing marketing tasks or wiping hundreds of paws so I didn't have time to work on something larger.
Cody has decided to study plants judging by the amount of leaves she brings inside. She likes chewing them up and then spitting them out in little soggy piles, I'll leave you to imagine what the little soggy piles look like.
I added a page for small prints on my website today. The prints of ACEO's are proving very popular so you can now buy them direct from my website.

Demonstration on How to Draw a Cat's Eye

I have adjusted my cat's eye demonstration.

The pack includes:-
A single laminated sheet with the instructions
Two 4 x 6 inch pieces of paper suitable for coloured pencils. On one sheet I have drawn the outline of the eye, the other is left blank.

I am planning to offer them for sale at £2.50 from my website.

Art Materials Live

I really enjoyed demonstrating for the UKCPS at the NEC, it is always a great social occasion meeting old friends and making new ones.
The art materials section had been moved this year and was surrounded by craft and food stands. I thought there were slightly less visitors to the art section although the craft section was really busy.
The format of the stand worked well as it was long and narrow enabling visitors to walk down the line of UKCPS demonstrators. As usual there were lots of comments about what could be achieved with coloured pencil and several new converts.
My eye demo seemed popular and sold out on the third day, I will be printing some more when get some time.

I'm at the NEC again next weekend this time it's the Supreme Cat show, more details to follow.
