The simplest things make my life so much easier - reusable cable ties, old fashioned bulldog clips, setting my eyes on a goal and going for it!
Preparing traditional gesso boards. Layers of gesso and whiting sanded and perfected. A lovely smooth surface. Contact me if you would like to know more.
The Ins and Outs of Painting Outside!
Please contact me on 07974391251 to join this workshop Sunday 16th July 2022 from 10am to 4pm. List of advised equipment to be made available before the day. Special price of £30 each for the day. Plenty of detail, bring a notebook or digital notepad (advised on confirmation of booking). We will be walking in the locality of Killay and Dunvant to arrive at the painting site, sturdy boots are advisable, let me know if you don't have a lightweight easel. We will have breaks:)
Thank you for visiting my site. My current aim is to post here once a week, I feel at last things are moving and so many moments in my day I am reminded of a need for record. Some people are interested in the day to day life of artists, I hope to develop creative drive in others and share the unexpected observations and experiences that come my way. It has been my preference since I can remember, to shy away from routine. Here I am talking about creativity from my perspective, it is up to you to interpret my experiences and advice to suit your needs. Understanding how your creativity functions is fundamental, we all have our own needs and elements that are shared with other creatives.
I also have opportunities to share my work.
The above painting of a seal observed in Pembrokeshire is one of many currently showing in my studio gallery on Gower's doorstep. Take advantage if you are passing through or live in the area. Visits by prior arrangement. The most likely slots are Monday and Saturday early evening.
Facilities: I have covered outside space for group and individual tuition. Currently I am checking the quality of my natural pigments for the first egg tempera workshop booking.
A one-off introduction workshop to painting outside is available subject to numbers, as shown at the top of this page. Please also do not hesitate to contact me if you have your own suggestions. You can develop skills in all media and learn how to prepare supports and grounds as well as the basic principles of framing. I look hearing your course suggestions.
