A trip to details

A trip to details Art Materials

Something more real here

[ Recently I started working on a new project and I knew that I wanted to find the right sketchbook to process all my research that would allow me to use different art techniques in it, that’s why I decided to come to town, and pay a visit to details Art Materials.] maybe lose thisSet between one of the main roads in Newcastle, you find yourself away from all the city hecticness when entering Newcastle Arts Centre, through their courtyard you can find an amazing sculpture of the Iron Man inspired by the story by Ted Hughes…and next to it is the entrance to this fabulous art store. 

‘details’ is not just another art shop, besides from the quality of their products, you can also trust their advice, I found myself talking to their staff who are also artists! And found out that Gina specialises in oil painting and portraits, Jed in sculpture, Heather in acrylic, digital and even book binding! And Ann, the manager has been working here for more than 20 years... whatever you are looking for: professional or student quality in oil painting, acrylic painting, drawing, model making, printing techniques, come and speak with this great team. 

After a nice walk through their different areas I remember what I came for and got submerged in their ‘sketchbook section’ and I got very excited when I found all the varieties they have for ‘Hahnemuhle’ as it has the perfect support for watercolours that is one of the main techniques I use. 

I will be definitely be coming back for new brushes and more materials next time when is time for the next stage of my project!
