Weekends of  13th-14th and 20th-21st August 2016

I’ll be running this year’s painting courses in the beautiful Orchid House of Helmsley Walled Garden . The gardens are outstanding, food at the cafe exceptional and the teaching transformational. For the established artist who wants to loosen up his or her style and/or the adventurous beginner, you will learn about colour, composition, texture and painting techniques. A fun weekend where you will learn a lot. 

There are two separate weekend courses that you can book onto, they are the 13th-14th of August and the 20th-21st August and the cost is £170, all materials included. Courses run from 10.00am to 4.00pm each day. For more information, or to book your place, click here

Really enjoyed painting this commission of Rosedale. Commissions are a great opportunity to hone painterly skills. In some ways I really liked the simplicity of the early stages but it had to be taken further and the brief was lots of warm colour.

Someone once sent me a little saying in an anonymous ‘share a special part of a poem with a stranger’ project.
It went something like this...

In the darkest part of the dark night - the light comes.

At the time I tossed it to one side dismissively as somehow not coming up to the mark in the profundity I was seeking.

However, it stayed with me and came to mind again when I made the arduous journey from ‘Helmsley Walled Garden’ to ‘Falling Cups’.
