Edith Steinberg

We have some fabulous drawings to show you today, by student Edith Steinberg who is studying on our Beginners Drawing Course. Students are asked to predominantly work from life, setting up a variety of still life scenes to draw from. This helps students improve their observational skills, as well as being able to transfer a 3 dimensional object onto paper. Edith has not only drawn these still life scenes extremely well, her depth of tone is superb. She has noted the light and shade well, along with their shadows on the ground too. We are thrilled to be able to show them all here on our blog to inspire our students.

Donata Zawadzka

This post is aimed at our illustrators and I believe they will be hugely inspired by Donata Zawadzka artwork. We simply love her style of painting, the attention to detail, all aimed at captivating a young child’s attention in a story book. Aren’t they all just wonderful! Pop over to our Illustrating Children’s Books Diploma Course if you would like to learn how to illustrate similar to Donata below.

Alison Robson

Do you struggle with your colour mixing? having difficulty choosing colours for your artwork? Perhaps you want to learn more about colours and different colour pallets and the history of colours. If these apply to you, our Colour Awareness short course might be perfect for you. Student Alison Robson has been working through the course and the artwork below was created for one of the set exercises in the course. It uses mixed media – paint, pencils, collage, digital – any mediums of your choice. Hope over to our website and read the course details to see if it would help you in your quest for creating colour!

Jade Parkin

One of our more unusual courses is our Chinese Brush Painting Course.  Student Jade Parkin has been working happily through the course and created some incredible studies which we have added below. Chinese course artwork is mainly painted using different strengths of ink and a variety of different brushes. You don’t need to purchase too many art materials for this course, so you can start creating straight away. As you can see just a few strokes of a Chinese brush, Jade has bought these bamboo leaves and practice studies to life. We hope you are impressed!

Linda Charge

Do we have any readers that are looking to learn more about painting, however are a little hesitant in trying out new mediums? If so, our Beginners Painting short course might be perfect for you. Student Linda Charge has created some amazing paintings and we are thrilled to be able to post then here on our blog. We hope that they inspire you to pick up your brushes today! We love the beautiful greens Linda has mixed in all three paintings. They have certainly brightened our day – we hope they have brightened yours too!
