Workshops & Demos

 I show you how to paint portraits/wildlife in watercolour, full of colour, with an impressionistic feel.  Suitable for all abilities, I share how to portray feelings and emotions in your work making it unique. With a mix of ongoing demonstrations and one-to-one attention, enabling everyone to work to the best of their ability.

 

You will be encouraged to develop your own style, to learn how to paint with Instinct alongside technique, to simplify drawings prior to painting to enable a looser style, to paint with colour that deviates away from the norm. Most of all, you'll have fun and come away inspired to paint more! We will cover:  

Brush Control.   How to see colour in shapes and form.    Simplifying drawing.

To play and experiment     Be creative with colour

Art Club demos and workshops

 

I am available to give demonstrations and workshops to art clubs, societies and privately. Please use the contact page to inquire about further information or booking. I can demonstrate either portraits or wildlife in watercolour, working from photographs. On average a demonstration will last two hours with a short break. Full day workshops vary and are tailored to your needs. 

 

From 2020

The cost of a 2-hour demonstration is £180.00   I am willing to travel, with an additional mileage fee of .45p per mile payable over 40 miles each way.  If over 100 miles, this may incur a cost of an overnight stay, depending on the time of the demonstration. If you would like me to come and demonstrate or run a workshop or would like to discuss anything further, please do get in touch. 

   Comments

"I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful demonstration you gave to our Art Society last night. It was truly inspirational and made us all want to grab our watercolours and have a go - even people like me who've never attempted a portrait in their life. It's a long time since I've heard so many positive comments about a demonstrator. We look forward to seeing more of your work in the near future."

Just want to thank you for a very enjoyable and inspirational workshop and I will definitely continue practising your technique. . . . . . . . Helen
