I am a practising artist who loves to share my wonder and enthusiasm about drawing, painting and the art materials themselves, so full of alchemy and possibilities. Making the ordinary extraordinary.
'Just Add Water'
A short course to get you inspired and ready to add some fluidity and flow to your watercolours
Indigo a gogo 2... Out of the Blue
I really hope that you loved getting to grips with your indigo pastel and have been inspired by my exploratory approach to this fabulous new medium. I decided to continue in my adventures with the indigo to see what else it could offer me when combined with other materials and natural organic pigments. So if you are ready to take your indigo & mixed media to the next level, and wish to know in more detail about grounds, supports and fixing, then this course is for you.
Indigo a gogo
Do you love Indigo with its deep nuanced depths full of inky promise as much as I do? Did you know that you can now get it in water-soluble pastel form? This short workshop style course promises to take you on an expressive exploration of this amazing new material.
More About Janette Phillips
Following degrees in Design, Art History and Fine Art my creative practice is now underpinned with time spent drawing, looking, photographing, musing.
I love to work expressively and fluidly with water-based mixed media. Colour is always predominant in my work and it is colour and the qualities of the pigments themselves which call to me and leads me in to explore further the distinct qualities of my art materials in response to my subjects.
Living in the Lake District clearly inspires me and helps to fuel the creativity in my own work. The magic really happens though when I share my expressive and exploratory approach with others and help them to connect with their own creative spark.
As an associate artist of Wallace Seymour Fine Art Products and a member of the Lake Artists Society, I have been inspiring and teaching art to all ages and levels for over 20 years now. I do hope that you enjoy making a connection with me and observing your own spark glowing a little brighter every day.
