Learner Painting of the Month.

Wow, this painting deserved to be the Learner Painting of the Month, the Wave, Sea and Rocks painting is by Beth Galipeau, a learner from the Art Class at the Millpool Centre in Looe.

She is very pleased with her painting and so she should be, I think its excellent, well done Beth.

‘Well’ what a lovely bunch of Learner Portraits.

Having put ‘My Selfie’ Portrait up for Public viewing a couple of weeks ago, I thought it only right and proper to do the same for my learners, so here are some of the Selfie’s painted by my Talented Students.

Well Done Learners for taking up the challenge and Yes, they do look like their owners! I can recognise them all.

Week 2 ‘No’ Drawing Painting Challenge of Animals or People

Well, where did that week go, time really flies when you a have a challenge to do!!

I found Week 2’s Painting Challenge a bit frustrating as I put too much emphasis on getting it right instead of just letting it happen.  I can fully appreciate how learners feel when faced with the projects I set them.

Young Lambs

Young Lambs

I started with painting a small area of the green grass area around the heads, to establish a shape so I could start painting the lambs.  Because I was being fussy I was a bit more tense and I don’t feel that I achieved the effect that I wanted.  But with practice and another 50 more challenge paintings without drawing of animals or people to do, so I would hope to improve!
