CP Magic July 2022 is ready and waiting to inspire you!
Heidi Elizabeth Seal is the featured artist for this issue. Based in the UK, Heidi has a remarkable art story, with her own commission-based business at 30!
What does she most love about art? Capturing little snippets of the world. She says, “Whether that’s a quiet canal in Venice or a sparrow hiding in the garden flowers, there is beauty all around us.”
Her subjects are many and varied, but they all have one thing in common. They reveal just how much she loves the things she draws and the way she draws them.
Her tutorial features an English robin drawn on Pastelmat, but with a twist. She includes three possible finishing touches for the project, so you can choose the one you like best. Or come up with your own!
What Else is in the July 2022 Issue of CP Magic!
