Painting Farming Landscapes & Scenes Course - October 2015


The five week course Painting Farming Landscapes and Scenes ended on Friday.  It was an enjoyable course with a fantastically high standard of paintings being created. The various farming scenes featured in the paintings were from local areas on the Island including Northwood, Apse Heath, Merstone and Sandford.  


Thanks to all the class for sharing their work on this blog post - the class would not have run without you!

Interior Scenes & Everyday Life Course - October 2015

Original pastel painting by Vicki 2015

Thursday was the last day of my Interior Scenes & Everyday Life Course.  The standard of work was exceptionally high.  

Students were asked to produce paintings that either included people, pets or scenes from everyday life.  Scenes of everyday life included paintings set in cafes, pubs, parks or any form of social gathering that captured their imagination.
