I’ll be teaching life drawing at the great art club at Café Canela @Canelacafeartclub in Hampton Court, starting this month on 20th October 2018. Come along for drinks, cake, a great model and tuition from me to get you drawing, cost £12. No experience is necessary, just bring a drawing pad and something to draw with. We will have exercises to get started followed by some longer poses. As soon as I get on Instagram I will link there, I know I am late to the party but I tend to live life in the real world rather than online, so bear with me. For now, have a look here. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to come along.
3 minute drawing, warm up.
Have a look at the new DM site, it is great to see the new home for our friends looking so beautiful. I was a bit surprised quite how much of my artwork, images, materials and even my face is all over it, so if you haven’t overloaded already… go and enjoy the website, full of beautiful images and food for thought.
Also have just been sent some lovely pictures from the participants in the May course in Ireland, and I will post a few here soon, the first is below.
Me ‘at work’, drawing on the last day of Wild Twins. Not a Dark Mountain course per se…
I am so happy to announce the new cover of DM13. I was commissioned to make large rock art for it, and the detail on the wraparound book cover looks great, thanks to design by Christian at Bracketpress. Here’s a sneak preview, more when the new DM website launches, and my blog post goes up on their site.
I have been working on the DM13 cover with ochres on huge rocks in Portland. All the work will have washed away by now. More news when I can tell it.
Go to Paulkingsnorth.net/course for more details, price and venue. We’ll be out in nature and waist deep in story, myth, beauty and radical connection to the land. Artists will respond to writers and vice versa. Image and text will re-join as they should, twins who are too often split apart in the world of adult books. This course will suit any one who writes, paints or draws, at what ever level, who sincerely wants to reconnect to land, wild nature (inner and outer) and to the deep red thread of story in their work.
