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. I like to produce
two paintings so after a short break I will finish with a quick
watercolour using the 'Line and Wash' technique, which is a
great medium to show and very popular with students.
With Oil demonstrations I will also explain my way of
painting and the materials I use, particularly when painting
out in the field. I then start by getting down as much paint
as possible in the first half of the demonstration, again
answering questions as I paint. After a short break second half of the evening is spent bringing the painting to a conclusion and adding the final touches.
Demonstrations are £175 plus mileage ( 20p per mile ). One day workshops are £300 plus mileage.
