In this class, we shall be building confidence and taking your painting to the next level. We will also be focusing on strong compositions, form, value, edges and color harmony.

 I shall demonstrate my easy, fun method of making a value study, which can also be used as the start of a painting.

 Students can paint from my still life setup, as well as from a variety of subject matter using photo reference. Some printed reference of flowers, grasses and fruit will be available to use.

I encourage anyone who has a painting in progress to bring it to class, so I can help you resolve any problem areas.

Hoping you can come and join us in a friendly, relaxed and great learning atmosphere.

 Oils, water based oils and acrylics are welcome.
