I am available to give demonstrations to, and run workshops for art clubs and societies – please contact me directly to make an enquiry or a booking. My area of expertise is that of line and wash, with a strong emphasis on drawing, and using selective watercolour washes, with a distinctive end result -not your traditional watercolour painting.
I have just published a printed list of current workshops : here it is
Update: I have recently upgraded my video camera/projector set up to a HD version, after seeing just how much they improve visibility and enjoyment.
A demonstration is usually just that: a pure demonstration in front of your members, using my camera /projection equipment and is usually 2 hours in duration, and can be any time to suit your club’s timetable.
The workshop format is usually a full day, usually from around 10 am to 4pm, with a lunch break,an initial introduction to my techniques and styles, followed by a simple exercise in drawing, handling the pen, and working with loose wet-in-wet washes, then after lunch, involves your members in recreating a subject in ‘my’ style of pen and wash with the aim of everyone going home with a finished painting
Both are informal, relaxed and easy going, and I supply all necessary background material for your members.
Here are some comments from recent workshops:
” your enthusiasm is infectious”
“Everyone enjoyed the demonstration, in fact one member as he was leaving said it was inspirational”
“thank you for making it a very interesting evening”
“Just wanted to say thank you for the workshop yesterday which from the feedback I have received was greatly enjoyed by the members”
“I do hope we can ask you back again next year.”
Based in central West Yorkshire, I can travel easily to most places: anywhere within an hour’s drive will incur no extra charge – if your location is significantly over that, we can negotiate (reasonable) travel costs.
