  • Simon Young - "Heres comes Faithful" on Gemini Paper

    We were delighted to hear from Simon Young, who we interviewed recently. He sent us in his feedback on our Strathmore Gemini Paper.

    "I promised to share my first Watercolour on Strathmore Gemini paper.  You’ll see there are some alterations from the sketch I sent earlier.  I wanted to make the tug (Faithful) make more of a statement; to achieve this she had to be larger, thus changing the overall treatment of the composition. 

    I much enjoyed working on this quality paper, which was stretched beforehand; it was forgiving and allowed a number of alterations that probably would have been an issue with some other papers.  The rough texture was especially exciting to paint on and dealt with copious amounts of water to create the misty scene with ease.  In particular, the river foreground accepted 4 glazes and I suspect could have received more.  
    In sum, Gemini is a very versatile and fun paper to work with and I look forward to getting to know it better."

    A Bird a Day...

    Christopher Durant is a popular artist on Facebook not least for his bird journals. A quick look at his page will reveal a lively engagement and love for our feathered friends. We recently got in touch with him, and found out that he loves the Strathmore 400 and 500 series! He is now a convert to our toned tan journal! We caught up with him and asked him a little about his work and what he is inspired by.

    1.So tell us a bit about yourself. How long have you been an artist and what got you into it?

    Hello. Well I'm 27 years old, soon to be 28 and i have been drawing pretty much all my life. Ever since i was around 3 years old I was fascinated by many things and my ability to draw helped me understand things better. If I was passionate about something new or wanted to learn more, I would draw.
    I gave it up for a while after a teacher at secondary school did little to inspire me, and said I wouldn't achieve much if I ever ventured into an artistic related career. I am thankful I returned to what I love doing the most and I have been drawing for around 5 years now. I draw everyday and it's my main passion to improve my

  • Mixed Media Artist wins SGFA Best in Show

    Sue Lewis-Blake won the Society of Graphic Fine Art ArtistPapers Strathmore Best in Show Bursary 2017. Her winning piece, “Before and After”, depicts a large log pile, drawn in coloured pencil, overlaid with painted and collaged tree forms. We speak to Sue to find out how she started her career as an artist and what she's working on now.


    peak torTell us something about yourself, Sue.

    Principally a landscape painter, I’m fortunate enough to live in a small Peak District Village with the most wonderful views. I moved to the area some three years ago from Warwickshire where I had taught art, product design and the history of art for many years. This “parallel” career was challenging at times – certainly in terms of time management – but I enjoyed the stimulation of being with my students and always saw the two aspects as mutually beneficial; new ideas emerged as I helped pupils to develop theirs. Teaching allowed me to engage with a vast range of materials and keep abreast of new developments -  although traditional drawing skills always underpinned every aspect of both my own and my pupils’ work.
