Dealing with a pandemic and getting used to remote working has been a challenge but at the same time an incredible experience. I learned to slow down and appreciate small everyday achievement. Thank you for all the support!
Here are some of the paintings demonstrated during the first week of classes.
I am glad that I give it a go to online teaching. Although we have to face some technical challenges and it was quite scary at the start this has been rewarding. I am very grateful to anyone that joined the classes and supported me in any way allowing me to do what I like most!
During these week I have done lots of demonstrations and started some online groups were everyone attending the classes could join and get feedback. I have to say that I am very impress in how students adapted to this new learning method and picked up new skills while painting from home!
Still life demonstrations…
For the bird and the owls we have been using a textural ground base of PVA and polyfilla. The octopus and the koy fishes were painted in watercolour with the addition of masking fluid, salt and cling film.
After popular demand I decided to add a Saturday afternoon beginner class.
Let me know if you want to sign up for this one! You can check my “Teaching” website page for more info.

The start of 2020 has been particularly busy and I haven’t got the chance to post the paintings demonstrated in the classes. Apologies, I am just starting to catch up on work!
For the images below we used Watercolour, Acrylic and Brusho. I personally enjoy to paint animals, so we did few to start the year! The cat and the turtle were particularly popular and everyone did really well.
I am looking forward to start now the new online classes, I was working today with the equipment set up. This is going to be a new adventure!
