Nina Tadsen

Nina Tadsen is currently completing our Watercolour Diploma course. Tutor Ida has been so thrilled with Nina’s artwork she has asked her if she would consider enrolling the Botanical Watercolour Course. You’ll see why! You can also read about the beautiful artwork from Nina below too.

I love flowers and gardening, so naturally my garden is a source of
inspiration for me. This summer I grew ornamental pumpkins and took photos while they were both blooming and bearing fruit.

I did not copy one photo exactly but used several photos and drew some sketches to plan the composition for this assignment.

It is painted on Bockingford paper roughly A3 in size. The main colours for
this painting are cadmium yellow, french ultramarine and Windsor blue for the yellows and greens. Some cobalt turquoise was used in the mix for a cooler background and burnt umber for the darker areas of the pumpkin.

Marlies Mast

A wonderful rendition of Sink City by London Art College student Marlies Mast. Scroll down to see the artwork in detail and read what both tutor maggy and Marlies has to say about her artwork.

Maggy said…

Here’s a lovely Sebastian’s Sink City from Marlies. I thought that it wasn’t only well rendered but it was such a creative and innovative concept with the drawings on the cupboard walls…

Marlies Said…

I love your course so far. It’s pushing my boundaries, so that’s a good thing. I had my children in mind when I created the Sink City. They love to make their own worlds with toys and cardboard boxes anywhere in the house and play in it endlessly. That’s why Sebastian is prominently in the picture. He created this city with kitchen tools and crayons.

We hope that you enjoy viewing the artwork of Melanie Stephenson below., Melanie is studying on our London Art College Illustrating Children’s Books Diploma Course and doing extremely well!

Look at this lovely relationship between this cat and pigeon, I love the colour of the yes and all that the expression says visually!

Quote from tutor Maggy Roberts

Here are a few of Melanie’s initial sketches for her cat and pigeon illustration. It is interesting to see how Melanie developed both characters.

Ann Bradford

Ann Bradford is studying our Beginners Drawing Online Art Course with tutor Ida Mitrani. Ann’s artwork is absolutely stunning and very blog worthy. We wanted to share it here to inspire other students in picking up a pencil and giving it a go themselves. It is so important to draw objects around you, even if its only for 5 or 10 minutes per day, it can really help improve your observational techniques and pencil skills.

As you can see from Ann’s artwork, particuarly in the first still life image, she has noted the direction of the light source, which is a really important first step. To successfully draw an object and make it look three dimensional, you need to include the light and shade within your drawing. Ann has created some lovely shading on her still life bottles and apple – absolutely superb!

Anne said on starting the course…

I hope to make an improvement with my drawing skills. I’m not really a beginner but some skills are better than others and I would like a complete familiarisation of techniques of differing varieties and tacking things I would not normal be drawn to (no pun intended!)

Christine Towndrow

Christine Towndrow has completed a number of our London Art College courses and we wanted to show two of our favourite pieces that she completed during her time with us. These two ingenious paintings are digitally created and are a modern take on a deck of cards. Who can spot the mobile phone, football, newspaper and chocolate bar to name but a few! We hope you enjoy viewing them!
