" You have an outstanding energy and commitment for teaching, not to mention patience, all of which reflects your own passion for your technique and the desire to pass on that knowledge to others. Thank you." Lynette W, London workshop



A programme of workshops in drawing, oil colour/palette mixing and portrait painting. 

This programme of workshops teaches the fundamentals and beyond in painting the portrait. It will give you the tools to create a new practice or ongoing improvement in portrait painting and is for all levels. For beginners I recommend attending the drawing and colour mixing workshop prior to the portrait painting workshop. For those with a little experience, intermediate level and higher, or continuing with their portrait painting practice, the workshops can be mixed and matched according to your needs eg a block of 3 portrait classes over serval months.

Although the online workshops are attended on Zoom, they are very ‘hands on’ - I work through each exercise with you, demonstrating beforehand and alongside, with continual one-to-one tuition throughout the workshop. There are advantages and of course some disadvantages with both online or physical workshops, these are minimal and either way is very beneficial to your practice as a painter. The number of students on the workshop are small. This ensures that everyone gets the proper focus and attention in order to benefit from the training.
