Oil and mixed media on canvas

“Kasbah sunset” is part of a series of works inspired by Ian Murphy’s visit to Morocco. The rich colours and tactile surface are very strong features, and work beautifully on the small sections of doors and passageways he discovered in the soukhs and medinas.
7 ideas I use in my sketchbook drawing when I am on location
I always stress the importance of my sketchbook to my creative practice - it is my constant companion whenever I travel, and it provides me the best solution to record the environment around me. I have always drawn in a sketchbook, its second nature to me, and it is one of the main things that students love to look through during my workshops.
The downloadable booklet will give you an insight into the creative strategies I use when I draw in my books and hopefully it will provide you with a substantial aid to share with your students.
