Christopher Atkinson and Adrian Holt

Posted by Lidya Endzo Kun iLLa
For this week’s update I am featuring the work of Christopher Atkinson, who joined Artists of Derbyshire (link above) a few months ago, and Adrian Holt, who enquired about joining but then created his own site

Devonshire Arms in midwinter
First of all Christopher. Christopher lives in the Bolsover area and has been painting for a number of years. He is inspired by Ashley Jackson, whom he has met, and whose site is at He learned to paint from Matthew Palmer, a local professional artist who runs classes in the area, as well as painting holidays and even his own TV series "Paint along with Matthew Palmer" on Sky 166 (Matthew’s site is at: Christopher mainly paints in watercolours. I notice that many people seem to start with this medium. Although it is not always the easiest to work in, the paint dries quickly and you don’t need any special equipment. He likes to paint local scenes and landscapes from within the county.

Adrian Holt is a ceramicist (potter) who produces potteryanimals, bugs, and figures, which seem to have an African influence, as well asmasks, in a similar style.  Hislandscapes remind me of quartz and Blue John formations and can be hung on thewall  (Blue John is a stone unique to the Peak District). I like his pots best, and they come in a variety of original shapes andcolours, the colours vary according to how they are glazed.  Adrian sometimes works on projects inschools, and you can see photos of him doing this on his website (link at top of page).

I see from the Arts Derbyshire website that Adrian has an event on at the moment at Glossop, where you can learn to make a coiled pot.  See their website for more details
