There’s more to the online class than can be shown in the videos -there’s a discussion after the study is done and students can ask questions they might have about the process or any other aspect of painting. Why not try it yourself? All you need is a PC or an iPad.
During the recent splendid weather, I saw this composition just waiting to be painted, with the dappled light falling in the shadowed area over the grass and sandstone path. In this excercise, I demonstrated painting from a photo reference; the objective being to heighten the colour and temperature of the scene for effect.

How to paint a Wine Glass
We’ll try to capture sunlight in a bottle – from the fruits of the vineyard to the glass. Each day we’ll work on a different aspect using a different photograph reference. A ‘nature morte’ or two and a landscape.
