It was a relaxed and engaging session, I have experience in drawing but haven't done it regularly in years so the casual atmosphere was appreciated to make the activity more approachable. Instructor was friendly and very informative on techniques for building confidence in drawing and offered appropriate feedback and comments throughout the class. It was a very personable class that I enjoyed at lot!

This piece, along with a few others was created for use as "merch" to sell at music events. I'm also a singer songwriter so I'm always looking for ways to bring my art and music together. The original idea for this painting was completed on the computer but the idea of a big display banner popped into my mind and I decided to do a large canvas. The canvas is loose, about 36 x 42 inches. Acrylic on 12oz canvas and is currently hanging in my living room here in Gresham, Oregon USA. Thanks for your

A friend asked me to create a painting for her to give to her sister as wedding gift. She sent me some some ideas of colour pallettes she liked and I used a photo I had taken of the landscape in Oxfordshire as inspiration. I painted the whole canvas bright pink first and let it dry and then painted on top.
