TUITION and WORKSHOPS

SOME WORKSHOPS ARE NOW PROCEEDING IN NSW – WITH COVID RESTRICTIONS EASING.

For the past thirteen years I have been traveling around Australia and New Zealand tutoring workshops on Australian landscape and seascape paintings – using the Alla Prima method in oils. Australia is rich in  stunning subjects to paint and there is nothing I enjoy more or that is more inspiring, than to see a well executed landscape or seascape.  Painting will always be my first love, but I feel rewarded by being able to impart knowledge and give help to others who are also enjoying the journey of art – something that has enriched my life beyond belief.

Feel free to contact me regarding future workshops for  ART SOCIETIES  both within Australia and also New Zealand. All my workshops are  TURPS FREE OIL PAINTING – for beginners to advanced. I WORK ALLA PRIMA  method with attention to SAFER, NON-TOXIC, NON SMELLY,  OIL PAINTING. 

I can create a workshop to suit your Art Society or Group depending on your needs –  painting water or seascapes – trees – landscapes. Contact me through the contact page of my web-site.
