Workshops and classes

Painting Classes

I run painting courses from my cottage home in Wattisfield.  Classes are usually no more than 4 people, so plenty of one to one attention.  Spaces are allocated on a first come, first served basis.  Materials are included in the course cost.  

My aim is for you to have an enjoyable, relaxed experience and by the end of the 6 weeks have a painting of which you can feel proud, to hang on your wall, or give as a gift.


What we will cover on the course

We will consider the materials used, their advantages and disadvantages.

We will study the chosen image together, looking at the various features that we need to be aware of, and those that need special focus.

We will then look at various ways of transferring the image onto your canvas. *

On to painting.  Deciding on the colour palette and a suitable background is next. * 

Then it will be time to start laying down colour.

Next, as you begin to build up layers, we pay particular attention to eyes and specific facial features.

Then we can look at how we can achieve depth and interest and add any finishing touches.

* (on an introductory course this will be done ahead for you ahead of time).


Gift certificates are available on request. Redeemable against workshops, classes or artwork.
