Upcoming Autumn Courses and Painted Gardens

Meryel working on her painting
I have just completed a four week course entitled 'Painted Gardens.' This is the first time I have taught this course for over four years.  The excitement of teaching the course once again was matched by the students truly excellent work.  During the course the students and I looked at the history of painted gardens, mixing different greens, applying texture and surface marks.  The students that attended were a mix of beginners and more experienced artists. Overall I had the pleasure to watch some of the best work emerge from blank canvases in my fifteen years of teaching. The results of which are for you to see below:
