    6th January - 25th February 2020: Cruise Workshops aboard MV Columbus

    In the New Year, Peter will be running workshops on the Cruise & Maritime Voyages flagship MV Columbus, travelling from London Tilbury to Sydney, Australia, on the first leg of its World Tour.

    Once the ship has departed from the UK, the Columbus will cross the Atlantic, stopping off at the beautiful island of São Miguel in the Azores before cruising on to the paradise islands of the Caribbean. After transiting through the Panama Canal and crossing the equator, five Robinson Crusoe-esque islands await the passengers in the South Sea before pressing on to the extraordinary scenery of New Zealand and Australia’s most iconic port and cosmopolitan city, Sydney.

    Peter will be keeping a daily blog of the voyage, and all that happens, as it happens (icebergs, sinkings, mutinies - everything), so if you fancy keeping up-to-date with the voyage, or checking out his TV interview...

    He concludes by introducing the concept of Drawing with the Eraser, using a simple landscape and a portrait as working examples.

    In Part 6, Drawing Boats, Peter turns his attention to the tricky subject of boats.
