The mediums offered include oil paint, watercolour, gouache, egg tempera and gold leaf, pencil, charcoal, conté crayon, and pastel.
I will help you acquire the skills that will give you confidence and lead you to your form of expression.
If you are beginning the journey I will take you through the basic concepts, practising each stage at your own pace until you are confident to go onto the next stage.
I will help you resolve the areas of difficulty you may be having with your work. Confident understanding and ability in painting and drawing support the student to explore and experiment with their creative ideas.
For the more advanced artist I will assist in resolving those areas of annoyance that sometimes come up, blocking you from moving forward with your projects.
I am happy to discuss your individual needs and will provide a list of materials you will require prior to commencement of a class.
