Isle of Wight bank holiday break

Beach houses, Ventnor Beach by Anthony Greentree. Sketch and watercolour
Wooden steps, Ventnor Beach
Deckchair, Ventnor Beach
Friday was a very wet and windy day for traveling on a ferry across to the Isle of Wight for a weekend away, but it wasn't too bad all in all. I wanted to at least try and do some sketching as it has been a few weeks since I haven't done any due to other commitments.
We stayed south of the Island, and visited Ventnor Beach which was where I decided to do a sketch of these lovely beach houses. I don't know what it is about beach houses but they have so much character about them and adds to the Englishness of spring / summer at the seaside. This time I added some colour to the sketch as I really didn't want to miss out on the brightly coloured doors which I thought was important to include. 

The other sketches were on the same beach, one being a deckchair which again has a wonderful character of their own and an old wooden seaside step. I do have more sketches on my Facebook page, but I feel these were the best of the bunch and I hope you enjoy them too.

Flyer and Poster designs

The past week or so I have been designing posters and leaflets of different sizes for Alvaston Opticians. The Offers and promotions were directed from the client and I had to come up with a theme based off the idea's discussed. I will be producing banners from these at some point soon.

Flyer Designs

This is an A5 leaflet I just designed for a client called BLUSH who have their own hair and beauty salon.

It's an A5 double sided leaflet. The logo was already existing and I had to freshen the design and try and keep it consistent with the website.

The flyer they had before was very different and didn't show the offers they had available. 

So if there is anyone living nearby this place and want their hair done, gives these chaps a go! :}>

Artwork Prints Now Available

I have recently uploaded high resolution versions of my paintings and drawings to REDBUBBLE where you can purchase prints in various formats. For example you can have a print of one of my drawings or paintings in the form of a poster or greetings card. If you click on the link below this will take you to my shop.

I will be continually added new works as I go along! :}>

Room for Music Banner design

One of my banners used at Kibfest
I have produced some illustration and design layouts for some banners needed for a community-based music workshop called ROOM FOR MUSIC. They provide a live band experience for kids and adults in which they can learn guitar, bass, drums, keyboard and vocals. They performed at a festival this weekend called KIBFEST and the banners were used then.

For more information on Room For Music, you can visit their webpage at:

New Website

Recently I have decided to join my design and art blogs together as one. From now on is the new home for everything Art and Design. I will try to keep you updated daily with what I get up to.

In the meantime you can have a look at my ever growing PORTFOLIO which is divided into sections so that you can view the relevant areas I cover.

I have also been starting up my private tuition again. currently I'm teaching a couple of people some basic lessons in painting and drawing. These are hourly sessions that you can have as and when, so there are no set blocks as such. For more information go to my TUITION page on this site.
