A Successful day of ‘Animal Portraits’ in Soft Pastel Workshop

On a Blustery November Day after the storm, at Blisland Village Hall, an eager group of learners, set out to paint either their own Pet Portrait or a different one as supplied.

Here are the results, along with my demo picture at the bottom.  Some are still work in progress, and needing some finishing touches, but I think you will agree that they have  ‘All’ Done Very Well.






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.
