Back to Basics Magazine Articles April 2015

I write articles for Back to Basics art magazine for each issue. It is now a bi-monthly magazine and has articles to appeal to all skill levels and all mediums and techniques. My recent articles appear in Issue 5_4 and are related to travel sketching.

The first article is How to Sketch Water. It is very comprehensive with lots of sketches and photos, as well as a step by step demonstration.

The sketch at the top is from Norfolk Island, bottom left is Patong Beach in Phuket and the bottom right is Kiama on the south coast of NSW.

There is a step by step demonstation of this sketch in the magazine

The second article in the magazine is Greens in the Landscape. This is a valuable article not only for sketching, but for the valuable information of various greens that are around us, either at home or away.

Wherever you are you can carry a small sketchbook and basic equipment to quickly sketch the enviroment.  I also take groups travel sketching to various areas both in Australia and overseas. It is so much easier to sketch with a group and lots more fun!
