The next six Sunday-morning classes are March 1, 8, 15, 22, 29, April 5th. Classes start at 10am and finish at 1pm.

The cost for six morning classes is £150.

A small, friendly class based in the Colour Factory garden studio. Numbers are limited to eight, to enable time for teaching one to one.

Tea and coffee is provided at the start and half-time. I’ll supply a list of basic art materials needed before the class begins.

There’s a short demonstration of how I start to paint something, then I go around talking to people one-to-one. We draw and paint from life, starting with still life, a simple arrangement of fruit. Later on, we paint a view of the garden and the studio, an old master painting, and finally a self-portrait using a mirror.

I encourage slowing down, working big to small, finding the big colour shapes. It’s a slightly abstract way into the painting.

It’s how I work. It helps if people have some experience of drawing but all levels are welcome.

You’ll get an idea of my approach to painting from Episode 3 of the 2018 series of Sky Arts Landscape Artist of the Year, Loch Fyne. I’m one of the contestants.
