Marlborough College, Wiltshire

I have been teaching at Marlborough Summer School for the past five years. It is a great place to come to learn to paint and meet new friends. For each course brushes, oil paints and basic equipment are included. You need only bring along your own canvases or boards to the classes. To book your place, please contact: Marlborough Summer School and follow the links to my art courses. For a preview of what to expect on each course, download my course information sheets below.

Oils, Top Tips & Trade Secrets - 23rd to 27th July 2018 - £430.00

Creating successful paintings relies on having a clear understanding not only of basic techniques but those tricks of the trade that usually only come with experience. We delve into everything the tutor has learned over a lifetime of painting, to learn how to create your own language of brushstrokes, use colour to express emotion and how to create movement and light in your work. An essential course for artist's looking to move on from the basics.


Oils, Fast & Loose - 30th July to 3rd August 2018 - £440.00

Learn to paint “alla prima” and loosen up!  Each painting is completed in one session, entirely wet in wet in around 3 hours. In the studio learn specific techniques to help you; how to layer paint wet on wet, colour mixing, blending and impasto brushwork. Painting from still life arrangements, photographs and sketches. Some outdoor painting and sketching, weather permitting.

By the end of the course, I hope you will have the confidence and skill to choose a suitable subject; know how to start and when to stop.
