Tamsin-Dearing-Title-Pencil

Featured in PAINT Magazine

I was invited to write a feature for the November 2020 edition of The SAA’s PAINT magazine. When considering what the subject might be I happened upon this owl, and I found its faraway expression so appealing as it looked to me as if it were deep in thought.

I really enjoy sharing the process of how I create an artwork. It is an opportunity to demystify what happens on the drawing board, and also encourages me to work in a more methodical and way than I usually do. The act of recording the stages, the colours used and the manner in which I work brings a focus to the act which can be really valuable. Plus seeing my words and art in print is always particularly rewarding, so thank you to The SAA. I hope that the readers of PAINT will find this tutorial as rewarding and fun as I did.
