With all my workshops I like to keep the atmosphere relaxed and informal, with the emphasis
on enjoying the proses of painting whilst showing the student what can be achieved by keeping things simple. The directness and simplicity of my technique helps to give the
student the confidence to have a go themselves. And throughout the day I'll move around the group giving one to one tuition answering any questions that may arise.
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 like to finish with quick watercolour
using the 'Line and Wash' technique, which is great
medium to show and very popular with students,
especially those who like to draw.
With Oil demonstrations I again will explain my way of
painting and the materials I use, particularly when painting
out in the field. I then start by 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 to a conclusion with the final touches.
