I had such a great day teaching Blue Jay Beauty mixed media workshop. We began the day with an acrylic background, then blocked in the bird and branch with acrylic. Once that was dried we switched to oils and finished everything off. Everyone did such a great job. To book one of my workshops simply choose a painting you would like to have a go at and register online for the event.

I had a fabulous time teaching these three lovely people in my studio today. This is a mixed media painting, and it was a lot of fun building up the layers first in acrylics and then finishing off with oils. The paintings are absolutely terrific, well done Bernie, Kevin & Daryl. If you would like to learn how to paint, then I would love to teach you, come into my home, enjoy tea, coffee, and biscuits and learn how to paint in just one day. I provide all the materials so you have nothing at all to worry about, simply turn up, and follow me step by step. My classes are relaxed and informal and are held in my private studio in Egerton, Bolton. Simply chose which class you would like to try your hand at and click the registration button, everything is so simple.

I had a great day today teaching my very first ever acylic painting workshop. Those who use acrylics know that you need to work pretty quickly when you are blending acrylics, however you can take advantage of the fast drying properties to create many many layers, which these ladies have done extreamly well. The layers of feathers could only be created in one day using acrylics and these ladies mastered using the mediums to their advantage. Fantastic work, well done Bernadette, Sandra and Alice.

Well I am really excited.  My students for next week portrait course and pet portrait course have been emailing me their chosen subjects, and I know without doubt we are going to have some incredible portraits.  We will begin next week with the burnt umber underpainting - which I expect will last over a two week period - afterall a good underpainting is the backbone to a great portrait.  I will keep you posted and try to include some step by step progressions as they are occuring (provided there are no surprise Christmas presents to keep secret), I will also post my own step by step progression on my chosen subject - which I have not yet decided between Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow or Will Smith - simply for his good looks - I will let you know.

I did it!!!! I am now an Alexander Certified Art Instructor.

I was thrilled on Saturday evening when I had confirmation from John Heinrichs that I had finally passed the certification programme. it has been an intensive few months but I am now looking forward to designing new classes and showing how easy it is to learn the wet on wet oil painting technique.

WET ON WET OIL PAINTING TECHNIQUE

The wet on wet oil painting is a fascinating technique and a wonderful introduction into the Magic world of Oil Painting – it was made famous by William (Bill) Alexander and his TV Series “The Magic of Oil Painting”, and one of Bill’s famous students – Bob Ross and his hugely popular TV Series “The Joy of Oil Painting”.Both Bill and Bob could produce entire landscapes and seascapes in less than half an hour on their respective television shows!

Within a few hours you will have a finished painting.It does not take weeks or months to complete.The speed of painting is one reason this style is becoming so popular,people’s lives have become increasingly busy and sadly there is less time to do the things that they have always wanted to do.Don’t struggle with a blank canvas – increase your artistic confidence and learnhow to paint using this simple wet on wet oil painting technique and discover the creativity that lies within which is simply waiting for the chance to shine.
