Summer Rain


I can hear my garden heave a sigh of relief…grey, grey skies and rain at last. My husband seems to be fishing, or possibly hiding in a hut, watching the water levels rise.

If you are reluctant to get an umbrella to get outside come and join a few summer art classes, inside if it is raining, outside if its warm, dry and appropriate.

Some classes start this week. Pick and choose whatever suits the dates you are free.

Drawing and Painting starts again on Thursday 6th June (click for more info)

Music and Movement, Life Drawing with a twist, 4th July (click for more info)

Music and Movement


15th February, 201, 10.00am – 4.30pm

£90/all day, including materials and model

At the Riverside Cottage Studio, Bransbury, SO21 3QJ


People move…

Suitable for all abilities.

In this class you will be looking at the rhythm and pattern of movement, combined with rhythm and movement in music. You will capture the model’s movement and tempo, whether explosive, calm, or repetitive.

There will be a series of exercises designed to show you different ways of interpreting the moving body. The drawings become something very different to photographs or film, but an expression of time and rhythm.

This is exciting drawing to undertake and exciting drawings to see.

Oil Painting for Beginners II (Colour)


Three Classes, Three Different Approaches to Colour

Feb 16th, 23rd and March 2nd.

10.00am – 1.00pm

£165/3, or £65/session


At Ramshill, Easton Common Hill, East Winterslow, SP5 1QF


If you have done the Beginners Oil Painting class the question is what to do next. On this course you will start to look at colour.

Colour is a huge topic. You will start by looking at three different approaches: at painting with a limited palette, alla prima and a variation of ‘on the shoulders of giants’.

Sometimes limitations are liberating, sometimes total freedom is exciting, and sometimes exploring the work of other artists shows you a new path. You will see that you are the master of your painting and you can paint any way you want…with a bit of practise.

I will suggest a list of equipment. There will be essentials, and others, less essential you might feel inclined to add to you supplies.

Summer Art Classes


Open Drawing and Painting Classes at Ramshill, East Winterslow

All Thursdays:

June 14, 21, 28

July 5, 12

August 2,9,16,23, and 30


Everyone has complicated commitments over the summer months; Drawing and Painting classes don’t always find a place on ‘to do’ lists.

This summer I plan to hold an open regular class on Thursdays.  It will be quite casual with drawing, painting  and general free for all encouraged. 

There won’t be separate afternoon sessions – you buy a day and turn up anytime between 10.00 and closing time at 16.00.  If you opt for all 10 sessions it will be £350 for the summer.  If you opt for individual days, which you need to specify, it will be £50/day.  Priority will be given to those that book for the full summer.

FIRST COME FIRST SERVE

I will provide coffee, tea and biscuits as usual, advice to those that want it, drawing exercises at 10.00, and a general theme/plan for the day.
