Truro Arts Company – Pastel Demo/Workshop Round-up.

On August 7th 2018, Truro Arts Company invited me to run a Demo/Workshop using Sennelier Soft Pastels.  In just 2 hrs the results of those that attended were without doubt brilliant.  Everyone worked hard following on from my step by step demo.  The results speak for themselves!


I am pleased to announce that Truro Arts Company have asked me back again next year,  for 2 full day workshops, the first one in ‘Soft Pastels’ ( 22nd July 2019) and the second is in ‘Watercolour and Soft Pastels Combined’ 30th September 2019).

You will be able to book your place for next years workshops through Truro Arts Company shortly.

Tonal Value Exercise by Students – 27th Feb 2018.

Working in Tone with Charcoal is quite challenging especially for students new to this medium, its a delicate and soft medium, creating beautiful tonal values.

The class at ‘Blisland’ were set this exercise, before they could start working in colour with watercolour this week.  Here are the results of ‘Oranges’ in tone and some watercolour paintings in progress..
