What will we be doing?

We'll be meeting once a week, on Mondays, for a live session in which we'll work from the same reference and paint together. I'll pick one or two subjects and take you through a step by step process for translating the reference into paintings. There will also be a facebook community for attendees and supporting videos demonstrating the colour mixes for each stage.

What will we be doing?


The planned start date is March 15th, 2021. But it does depend on my daffodils being ready by then. It shouldn't be a problem, and I'll give you plenty of notice in case I need to change that date.

The live streams will be on Mondays at 6PM UK time (10AM Pacific, 1PM Eastern.)

Course curriculum

The Daffodils are only a few weeks away from unfolding in the garden. In this workshop, we'll be exploring the colour, value and form of these beautiful flowers.
