what a fantastic day I had today teaching my version of a Wilson Bickford Painting "Dusky Falls". The day was full of banter, laughter, and plenty of cups of tea! Acrylics can be difficult to master, but with a few hints and tips on how to blend look at what this lively bunch have created. Well done to Daryl, John, Frank, Cheryl, Emily, Janet, Andy and Denise - what a super job you all did! If you would love to learn how to paint in oils and acrylics then why not drop on one of my painting workshops. The techniques taught in any of my classes are transferred easily into any painting subject, and you can be assured of a fun and fabulous day too with lunch included......what a bargain!

A had a fabulous time today painting with Jeremy Ford, and his fabulous "Moonlight" watercolour. Everyone produced some terrific results (and have already booked on the next workshop) Jeremy is a very patient tutor, and explains things so well - everyone took home a painting they were delighted with - well done to Geoff, Joy, Aileen, Amy, Denise, Jill, Chris, John, Connie, Janet & Maureen, and a HUGE thank you to Jeremy for a fabulous and rewarding day. I am already looking forward to the next one! I am also proudly showing off my version of this beautiful painting - as I am rather proud of this especially as water colours are really not my thing. Jeremy really showed me how to create atmosphere and detail, so much so I think I will be trying my hand at watercolours again and again......though I might have a go at this one in oils :-) To book Jeremy's fabulous Christmas floral on the 15th November simply register your place online. But please be quick if you want to reserve a place, as 5 places have been taken already (and they went in the space of half an hour!!! )

I spent a fabulous week in West Sussex at the White Swan Hotel last week, and completed Level 2 of the three step Bob Ross floral course. Our instructor Ellen was an incredible teacher, and she was very thorough in her explantion of the techniques needed to create outstanding florals. Level one was taught by Bernie, who was also an amazing instructor, and I think that it is fabulous to pick up tips from these well established artists so that I am able to share this information with my own students. I can honestly say that I LOVE learning new techniques and constantly find new and exciting things to learn and share, and will always consider myself a student and look forward to a lifetime of learning! What about you guys? Which instructors inspire you most?

Glitter in the air

Saturday 3rd November had us painting this stunning winter landscape. The weather was cold outside, but warm and cosy inside the studio and the laughs were flowing as freely as the tea and coffee. I always enjoy it when the studio is full, and whilst painting "Silent Night" I began to really feel that Christmas is in the air. The festive feel was increased right at the very end I brought out the ultra fine glitter as an optional extra, and once they saw the glitter sparkling on my own demonstration, they all decided to put a little sprinkle on their own paintings. And What Results! Anita suggested that she photograph hers and have some personal Christmas cards made up - now that a fabulous idea! Well done to Ann, Anita, Chris, Kevin, Pat and Daryl. I would also like to thank George David Ellis for the fabulous photos.

I have been busy today, cracking on with brand new classes for 2013. My schedule is pretty full between now and Christmas so these two lovely paintings will be going on sometime in the early part of 2013. Titled "Bucket O'Daisies" & "By the Beach" both these lovely paintings are using the wet on wet technique, and are both suitable for complete beginners. Absolutely no drawing skills are necessary. If you have always wanted to learn how to oil paint, then come along and join me for a fabulous day of fun and painting, I am sure if you browse my class schedule you will find something you would love to have a go at. Impress family and friends and take a completed painting home in just one day.
