In person painting sessions are currently suspended until further notice.
 
 
I have been running painting workshops since January 2011. These workshops  focus on using acrylic paint.
Acrylic is a forgiving medium suitable for complete beginners and for those  with more experience wishing to develop their skills.

 
These workshops aim to be a practical hands on experience, and hopefully fun. You can walk away with you own painting.
 
All abilities are welcome to attend. You will be welcome to paint whatever subject matter you please. You can work from your own sketches and/or photographs.
I can supply a selection of photographs if required.
 
I will also demonstrate some of the painting methods I employ.
