Learn to see things in new ways.
Interpret subjects with artistic flair rather than exact likeness.
I’ll show you my way of simplifying a scene and stripping it back to its bare essentials, ensuring we capture the most important elements of strong light and atmosphere.
My painting style is loose, impressionistic and light-driven. I use the medium to its full advantage and exploit its unique characteristics. Watercolour does things that no other medium can do. Let’s push those things. Let’s push the light. Let’s simplify the scene and break it down into its important elements. Let’s not obsess with detail. Let’s create some cracking art!
I cater to all levels. Watercolours often daunt beginners but with my relaxed, fun approach to teaching and relaying knowledge, they always LOVE my workshops. I focus on alleviating the pressure that they put on themselves when starting in WC. We’ll be producing at least two completed works per day. I’ll demonstrate the scene in sections, to ensure the process is broken down for easy reference. Students paint each section after I’ve completed the section first. All the while, I don’t stand still. I am always over shoulders helping and guiding where needed. While the painting is the primary focus, FUN is mandatory. I will ensure this workshop will be a memorable one for reasons of learning AND having a damn good time!
