Watercolour demonstrations start with a brief introduction and a review of my materials, followed by a half imperial size watercolour answering questions as I paint. With my watercolour demonstrations I like to produce two paintings so after a short break I finish with a quick watercolour using the 'line and wash' technique, this is a great medium and particularly useful for beginers.
Oil painting demonstrations are usually painted with the palette knife and I like to finish one painting on the evening. So again after a breif introduction and review of my materials I start by showing the sketch and then getting down as much paint as possible in the first half of the demonstration again answering questions as I paint. The second half of the evening is spent bringing the painting together with the final stages and touches of detail.
With all my demonstration I like to show the student what can be achieved by keeping detail to a minimum and emphasising simplicity with direct brush or knife work, hopefully giving them the urge and confidence to have a go themselves.
Demonstrations are £200 plus mileage. One day workshops are £350 Plus mileage. ( 20p per mile )
