Sheep on the Moor - 24th April 2014
This is the unfinished, watercolour demonstration I painted yesterday for pupils at my local school in Sleights.
This is the completed painting. I added the branches on the background tree, further grasses against the dark background and sheep, together with darker grasses in the foreground creating more texture and interest. Finally I used white Gouache paint to enhance the highlights around both sheep.
I hope that you all enjoyed the talk and demonstration. Let me know if you have any questions

I have just added a new Watercolour demonstration to my Demos page.

Weekend Painting Workshop at Runswick Bay - 12th & 13th July

There are still places available on my Weekend Painting Workshop in the beautiful coastal village of Runswick Bay.
12th & 13th July
The village, with its white painted cottages and neat gardens looks out on one of the loveliest bays in the North of England and one which provided safe anchorage for fishing boats for more than 600 years.
When the industry began to decline, its unique setting attracted first Artists and then holiday makers.
Runswick offers the painter a wide variety of subject matter. Whether you prefer painting beach scenes or intimate cameos, you will find something to suit, right on the doorstep of the village hall.
If you would rather paint indoors, the hall, which has stunning views over the Bay, is spacious, with all modern conveniences.
The village has its own pub, serving meals, both at lunch time and evenings. There is also a wonderful cafe situated just above the beach, providing sandwiches and snacks throughout the day.
Please follow these links to download information sheets, (Weekends:21st & 22nd June and 28th & 29th June are full)
The view outside the venue
 Many thanks to all who have booked their places, we're really looking forward to seeing you all.

New Pastel Step by Step Demonstration - 18th February 2014

I've added a new Step by Step Pastel demonstration to my site.
The painting is of one of my favourite subjects, The Hermitage close to my home.
Using Pastels for this Autumnal scene helped to depict the rich colours we see at this time of the year.
Please contact me if you have any queries.
