Learn to Paint on Zoom

Would you like to learn about acrylic paints and mediums, Gelli-Plate® monoprinting, pastels or watercolour techniques? Then why not book an art lesson on ZOOM!

As you create your paintings step by step, you'll learn acrylic techniques such as impasto, sgraffito, underpainting, layering, texture gels & pastes and mediums. Watercolour techniques include wet into wet, layering, spatter effects and masking.

I also offer a demonstration on 
'How to Filter Dirty Acrylic Rinse Water' 
...which helps the environment and saves your plumbing!

Bespoke workshops are available if you would like to learn anything specific in acrylic, pastels or watercolour. Supply lists are discussed beforehand. Suitable for beginners, improvers or more experienced artists who want to add to their skill set.

We’ll start with sketches where I’ll demonstrate how to capture patterns and mix colours. Then we’ll move on to a blank canvas using acrylic paint and mixed media. You’ll be given basic instructions open to interpretation, as you are guided through techniques to create individual acrylic paintings on a canvas to take away.
