“I will be teaching how to apply washes, how tone plus colour gives “value”;, colour mixing, how to work for colour harmony, etc. Good drawing is the underpinning of representational and romantic- realist painting, so I shall teach linear and atmospheric perspective, drawing both with pencil and with brush. I will introduce the class to wet on dry overlaying, but also to wet in wet style, to suit the subject matter. We will start with simple subject matter and move towards more complex. Working from still life subjects is invaluable as all the above can come together Iin such work. I also hope that when we are ready we can try portrait painting in water colour. I intend to gear the rate of our lessons to the needs of the participants. Later I shall encourage you to bring individually chosen photos, but to begin with we can all work from the same photo to ensure we can master the basics together. I hope the class will feel free to ask questions at all times. ”

I’ve decided to do this because I was well taught the basics when I was much younger, and think it is time for me to pass what I have learned on. Also it is a good opportunity to raise funds for a charity I am involved with. This involves working on a heritage tram project at Ferrymead to which I have been contributing for some time. I look forward to share my painting experience with you all, Regards Don.

A painting journey for women on all ages. In this two day workshop held over two consecutive Saturdays , you will have the opportunity to touch an aspect of your feminine essence and bring your own unique expression of her to the canvas.

With my guidance you will be supported on every level to create a unique and original piece of art to take home. NO PAINTING OR ART EXPERIENCE REQUIRED , although if you do have some painting experience you will still get value from this workshop. This process gets you in touch with an aspect of your feminine self who is wanting to be seen and expressed more freely in your every day life ….and may open up a vein of joyful creativity that you might not have experienced for a very long time. This process is both intuitive and inclusive of some technique .

This workshop is especially useful for those who long to paint and express creatively , but may have some blocks to actually having a go or simply do not have the space at home to do so , or know where to start. I guarantee that no matter what your current experience, you will create a very individual painting over the two days. Most participants reaction is “Wow , I cannot believe that I created this!”

Places are strictly limited to 4 women so I am able to give individual attention where needed . The fee includes ; my individualised instruction with enough technique to achieve your goal, a canvas , use of high quality acrylic paints and all materials to will need to complete your painting. Also light refreshments through each day. I Also supply some reference notes to use and take home with you.
