Information for Art Societies

If you are an Art Society or Group programme organiser, do get in touch should you be interested in a demonstration, workshop, critique or judging for your exhibition.

As I work in oils, watercolour, acrylic, pastel and drawing mediums, I am able to accommodate most requirements or perhaps suggest new to help you fulfil your programme. I try to be as flexible as possible and adjust my presentation according to your requirements. I can supply materials for workshops if required. In all workshops, I supply a full schedule for your session plus a material list for your artists you can pass straight onto them to alleviate any likely confusion on the day.

 

Here is a list of subjects I run regularly if you can't see what you are looking for please ask me. These may be in any medium shown above

 

  • Portrait, Figure (clothed), Life (nude) - I can provide sitters and/or model at cost 

  • Still Life - An excellent leveller and great for demonstration or workshop 

  • Landscape, Seascape/estuary, Boats & harbours - a popular one for teaching water/boats

  • Horses, Elephants - I rarely paint other animals 

  • Interiors - useful for perspective and the fall of light 

  • Understanding tonal values - my most asked for workshop teaches, ambience and mood

  • Sketching - summer workshop - we have a morning inside learning technique then go outside to capture specific set scenes  

  • Introduction to Plein air painting  summer workshop at a local venue to your group

  • Drawing in its own right or in conjunction with painting - levels include basic, basic constructive for painting and in several mediums, graphite, charcoal, ink

  • Palette knife painting - in oil or acrylic for workshop but acrylic for demonstration due to paint drying time
