Classes November – December 2019

Below there are some of the images I demonstrated in the watercolour and acrylic classes last couple of weeks.





Beautiful view from the City Hall from a south-westerly point. Acrylic and watercolour versions.


This watercolour was inspired by an old image of Belfast (probably early 90ths). I already painted this view with acrylic and collage two years ago but I like the image and I love to revisit it from time to time!


We loved to paint over a dark background with acrylic paint!


The owl was painted with a wax resist technique, watercolour and brusho powder.



Cat in watercolour and acrylic.


You can see some of my painting as well on my instagram account:

Classes November 2019

After a long break I am eventually managing to post an update of the classes, some of these images were painted before the midterm break, time fly!

Below are some of the landscapes painted by students in Brusho powder and watercolour during last month inspired by the late autumn colours.


These landscapes were painted in the watercolour class as demonstration.


As well few students in the classes tried for the first time to draw/paint a portrait this month. Challenging exercise but rewarding at the same time!


Below are some of the portraits I demonstrated in the class using watercolour- acrylic-charcoal and pen. Some of the drawings were as quick as two minutes!

Classes September – October 2019

Just below is a landscape demonstration painted on week 2 of classes . For this one we used acrylic paint, roller, spray bottle and palette knife.


These demonstrations were painted in “Brusho” pastels and some acrylic paint.


Here there are some of the students works painted in Brusho and acrylic.


Finally, featured below are paintings and drawings from the portrait class.

In the class we work with pictures, life models and even self portrait.

Week 4 and everyone is doing great!
