Painting Courses 2020

Next Course:

The two day oil painting courses for beginners and improvers held in each year since 2011 are very popular. I am holding more of these once the current restrictions on travel and social distancing are lifted.. Contact me now if you want to be included in future workshops.

I have also been asked to run another still life and interiors and a painting in the garden workshop in the next couple of months. Contact me if you have an interest in attending such a course.

I am also planning masterclasses via Zoom whilst the current emergency exists. If you are interested in participating these kindly contact me via or messenger.
