Painting silhouettes on marbled paper like Jan Pienowski

I always loved the illustrator Jan Pienowski’s work with marbling and silhouettes. This summer at art camp we made some illustrations in his style. jan pienowski jan pienowski jan pienowski castleJan pienowski

Bookshelf Mural with Pot Plants

I recently finished a lovely commission which was to paint a bookshelf with dangly plants onto a kitchen wall. The clients chose some book titles and let their friends make suggestions too. As they have kindles/e-readers they don’t have a need for many books in their house anymore.

still life observational drawing at kids art club.

This week we set up three tables of objects to draw. We talked about

  • looking carefully at the objects
  • selecting the bits we want to draw
  • drawing the object from ‘my’ point of view
  • how to paint a gradient
  • mixing the colour we want

EFL teaching aid: through the tunnel, over the bridge, up the mountain, around the castle…

I made these to help my students practise speaking. These pics are the original paintings, I’m going to photocopy and laminate them. Then, students can draw along the path with a whiteboard marker as they say “around the island, through the city” etc. All 4 drawings join up to make one long journey. 

If you want a copy, email me and I’ll see what I can do.
