This week has been the week for deliveries and new plans regarding publicity. Based on the business cards last week (see 1st July Update post) I now have a tshirt design to wear for events / around town to promote discussion, business possibly. I have some prototype business posters to develop further as an idea. For events where I use a table to sell from I now have a banner to fix to the front of the table making it very clear who I am and how to contact me. I will leave images until I am using these at an event itself so should have some photos for the next weekly update.
My new canvases order has arrived so I can start my commission work and producing more panoramic landscapes. I have a meeting today and some clients from PAW have come back to me for a photographic piece too so there is more work in the offing. I am back to sketching most days and have also started a new “Skies” sketchbook to keep an ongoing record of local skies. This will help me develop skills with different media as skies have been a weaker area to date. Yesterday I practised water textures between customers at my river job.
Saturday 8th sees me spending the afternoon at The Arty Bazaar at the Boilerhouse galleries site in Corfe Castle behind the Swanage Rail station. It is a new event for me and hopefully one that may become a regular event.
In the next week then I need to arrange more meetings with clients, work on commissions, sketch and just enjoy my lovely surroundings.
If you see any examples of work that you like either here or on the Facebook page please email me on firstname.lastname@example.org or ring on 01929 481539. Sales can be direct, mailed… the key idea is that I want to expand my customer base.
