Meet me at the Pencil Museum May 30th – 31st & June 1st Next Week

I am going to be at the newly-refurbished, world-famous Pencil Museum next week, in Keswick in the heart of Englan’d’s beautiful Lake district.

The Museum was almost destroyed with the winter floods of 2015 and it has taken this long to get up and running again. I can’t wait to see the new demonstration area – I’m told there is a whole lot more room now, so come along and meet me.

Learn all about how pencils were invented and first made in Keswick and see all the fantastic drawing products in the Derwent Pencils Shop.

I’ll have books for sale there too which I will happily sign.

Here is a great video all about the history of Derwent Pencils being made in The Lake District

How to draw a coffee table – Number Five

It’s the final day of How to Draw Tables week and today you can learn to draw a round, pedestal dining table.

Inspired by a request from Joseph Hernadez, who asked me to draw a dining table, I am doing a different “how to draw tables” video every day this week. Asked to draw a dining room table, what style should I choose? Round, square, oval, octagonal – three, four or more legs? Maybe a pillar style tripod – so many choices. So I am drawing a different table every day this week.

As a bonus, I have made an extra , exclusive video about drawing tables – any table you like – Here on my Patreon Page where you will also find a free pdf download sheet available too.

Let me know what you think – should I do other themed weeks?
