April is here and so is my March Art Slice video round-up ready for a bit of creative inspiration to help get you excited and buzzing for some art making over the weekend I hope!
It’s a mixed batch of illustrative, pattern and mixed media this month so I hope you find something that makes you feel like sharpening your pencils, breaking open the paint or grabbing for your stencils!

Hand Drawn Surface Pattern
Last month found me experimenting with pattern with this hand drawn repeat element. I did set down a pencil grid to help guide the pen work but I don’t think the camera quite picks it up. If you were here on Wednesday you will have seen another version of this pattern in the Watercolour and Pen project video share.

Stencil Rubbing With Watersoluble Pencils and Crayons
I shared a fun technique that is great for using with stencils in my second art slice for March. It is such a fun technique and a super quick way to cover a page with pattern and colour.

Gouache Spring Pattern
Yay Spring and a Spring-inspired pattern using Gouache paints was the third art slice for March.
Brush Pen Flowers On A Watercolour Dot Background
Spotted the subtle title change? I’m trying out some new video title pages at the moment, what do you think?
So this art slice was a pattern share again but more of an organic pattern than the planned and guided pattern that started the month’s shares.
Under The Sea Watercolour And Ink
Finally a bit of sea-inspired fun with this watercolour and pen illustration.
