Art Groups & Societies
If you would like to invite me to your Art Group, albeit via Zoom, then please email me and I will be happy to talk through the options and explain how this works.
All demonstrations run for up to 2.5 hours and are recorded so that your members will be able to watch this demonstration again for the following 7 days.
I can be booked to deliver various demonstrations and workshops. All are available on-line or in person. Here is a selection of what I can offer. However, do please contact me to discuss your ideas and if I can create a bespoke event for your society, I will.
Big Skies over the North Downs - Oils: Let me show you hove to capture skies and clouds on a big scale. Working fast and loose to create a lively painting and incorporating impasto medium for the foreground downland.
Seascapes - Oils: I love painting seascapes and beaches. Working from sketches and photographs to create an atmospheric beach scene under a large open sky, incorporating figures or boats to give a sense of scale and interest.
How to Paint Horses - Gouache, Oils or Oil Pastels: I painted horses as a child, not being very good at riding them! In this demonstration I show how to get the poportions right for both a head and whole horse before moving on to paint a horse head portrait or a whole one in a simple landscape during the second half of the demonstration.
Interpreting Photographs - Gouache, Oils, Mixed Media or Oil Pastels: Many of us paint from photographs. During this demonstration I show you how to use several images to create a planning sketch. Using this sketch with the supporting images to then create a finished painting. If you wish, I am happy to use photographs supplied by the group, unseen by me in advance.
Use those Sketches! - Gouache, Oils, Mixed Media: Taking ideas from my sketchbook, sometimes combining more than one, to paint a landscape, woodland view, river scene, boats in the estuary, or indeed anything else from my sketchbook.
FOR ALL ENQUIRIES ABOUT DEMONSTRATIONS OR WORKSHOPS, PLEASE EMAIL ME OR CALL ME ON: 07970 432348.
