In podcast episode 46, we spoke about how sometimes, taking a short break from our art can be beneficial and help to re-fill our creative well.

Ep 53 Art Inspiration Versus Imitation - Is Anything Really Original?

January 27, 2020

Today we are talking about inspiration versus imitation and the two are very different things! When we are starting with anything new we all tend to imitate, we copy drawings and painting techniques to learn how things are done. And that is completely normal. But then there comes a time when we need to find our own way and use what we have learned to create something new that we can call our own.

So if you haven’t joined us yet and you want to improve your skills, then now is a good time to start.

Ep 50 Ask us Anything Christmas Special Part 1

December 9, 2019

This podcast is a little different to our normal episodes in the fact that it’s an “Ask us Anything” Christmas Special. Well, in fact, it’s part one of a Christmas Special. Now whether that’s because you asked us too many questions or Sandra and I talk way too much I will let you decide. Personally, I think it’s the former. But anyway Part 2 will air on the 23rd of December, so you can listen while you slurp on a little Eggnog or snog your significant other under the mistletoe (that’s going to be a very long kiss)!

Don't forget to listen out for Part 2 of the "Ask us Anything Christmas Special”on the 23rd of December. The normal podcast will resume on the 6th January and we also have some interesting guests coming up in the new year.

November 25, 2019

Today we are talking about drawing from life versus drawing from photos and which is best. And I think we know, now more than ever before, what a different skill drawing from life is since we started doing a lot more sketching trips out and about.

It’s really easy to rely on photo’s for practice, and while there’s nothing wrong with drawing from photos, it’s important to also practise drawing from life as much as you can.
