For most beginners and intermediate artists, the problem is…
Figuring out what to do and how to do it to achieve a painting you feel good about, this is almost impossible for beginners.

There are too many unanswered questions for beginners.
• What Medium to use? Oils, Pencils, Acrylics, Watercolour, and what’s the difference?
• Which Colours to use and how to mix them to get the colour you want?
• How does composition work?
• How to get different tones and values?
• What brushes do you use and when do you use them, what effect do they have?
• And what do you paint on? Canvas, Panels or Paper?
• What are mediums, glazes and solvents and do you need them?
• And what on earth will you paint?

No wonder beginners quickly become confused and overwhelmed and often times give up altogether
What I’ve observed the most is the beginner to intermediate artists were over complicating the painting process, hoping it will turn out alright and if not they weren’t enjoying it and not getting satisfactory results.

So this course is all about simplifying everything, making it easy so you can get great results and leave with paintings you are proud of. I take you step by step to complete the paintings, both the seascape and the abstract, breaking it down in easy to follow steps.

Me teachingOn Day#1 the Seascape, we will be using a 3 step method
● 3 Colours ● 3 Brushes ● 3 Materials
By using this method and reducing the number of colours and brushes and showing you how to use them, you will get great results, feel less confused and much more confident and happy with your paintings, knowing exactly how you achieved it!

FlowersOn Day #2 We will look at different and interesting ways to use acrylics to create wonderful effects and fascinating dimensions to your painting. Acrylics really give us the ability to explore their potential and possibilities; you will be amazed at what you can create.

On Day #3 You get the opportunity to experiment for yourself by putting into practice, with guidance, all the things you’ve learned. This is a great way to really discover your hidden artist! I’m always amazed and thrilled when I see students take that leap into creating something unique to them.
