Demonstration Paintings

Painting demonstrations at Art Clubs usually have to be delivered in less than two hours, allowing time for short discussion and tea and coffee break, I really do enjoy this discipline as it helps me to loosen up. I try these techniques out with my own students and have got some good results. Obviously many students find it difficult to produce a painting in one two hour session, but over a couple of months I have seen some great progress.

Occasionally I have my students painting a French Impressionist subject, portrait, landscape or seascape etc.. Other times we discuss how to look for 'Little Gems' in a photograph or paintings of other artists in Art Books such as Walter Foster , it is surprising just how many possible painting ideas you can get from one photograph. 

If you would like to book me for a demonstration or workshop here in the UK or you would like to commission me to paint a portrait, either in oils or in the new medium Digital Paintings please use the Contact Form. I can arrange Painting Holidays with myself as the art tutor for groups of artists (minimum 9 people) to the beautiful region of Cortona in Italy staying at the Castiglion Fiorentino in Tuscanyor if you prefer Switzerland as a painting destination, I have two possible locations, the first is staying at the Chalet des Alpes in  Crans Montana in the beautiful Rhone Valley region. The second location is at the Chalet Cretta Mour in Veysonnaz also overlooking the Rhone valley. I have been in touch with the owners of all three venues, and they are very keen to make the stay of visiting artists a memorable occasion.
