2016 is looking quite busy. I will be continuing to run courses at Kingsclere Village Hall, The Hurst School and for Basingstoke College of Technology. I have also been asked back by the Home Education Group I have previously ran classes for to teach. Starting with six weeks of drawing and sketching lessons for 10 to 13 year olds.

Art Courses for the New Year
I had two commissions to complete for Christmas this year the first was a portrait that was very well received. While the second was more challenging; a specific Sunbeam Talbot car in British Racing Green. Which is quite a difficult colour to pin down. It did not help that the main reference photo I was asked to work from was in black and white! However I am happy to say the Client was very pleased with the final result.

So now I am looking forward to making some new work 'for me' now as well as having an eye on a few upcoming open exhibitions and Art Fairs.
Unfortunately my new Daylight Easel Lamp that I received for Christmas is missing a piece so I am still having to make do with my current studio lighting. I hope it can be sorted out soon as the January cloud cover and lack of light is not exactly conductive to painting!
Wishing you all a Creative and Successful New Year!
