A fantastic opportunity to join me on an outdoor landscape oil painting workshop in the town and surrounding countryside of Battle, East Sussex
About the Workshop
At the start of the day, we will take a short walk to our first location for a painting demonstration with an introduction to painting outdoors and we will look at the equipment and palette. The demo focuses on composition, blocking in, light and tonal values. You will then begin to work on a painting and putting these ideas into practise at this beautiful location. 

We will return to the studio where we will enjoy a lunch served in the garden. Afterwhich we will move on to a new location. There will be another short painting demonstration from me to help us focus on the key elements and shapes of our chosen painting spot. The remainder of the afternoon will be spent painting together where I will work with each artist to enable progression. 
A collective display of the paintings created will be held at the end of last session to give us an opportunity to discuss and share our experiences in a friendly and relaxed approach. 

This workshop will suit artists with an interest in landscape painting and being out in the elements, all levels welcome.

Includes lunch and refreshments.
About Me
I am an Associate Member with the Royal Society of Marine Artists and the Royal Institute of Oil Painters, exhibiting at the Mall Galleries in London every year. I am one of the original members of the selection committee for the Hampstead Art Society and I am on its judging panel each year for its annual summer exhibition.

Spending my childhood growing up in New Zealand, I was introduced to oil painting at an early age by my father. At sixteen, I achieved membership to the Society of Architectural Illustrators and went on to complete my art training with a degree in Illustration at the University of Kent at Canterbury.

The beautiful sense of light and shadow that was so much part of my early life in New Zealand has informed my painting subjects ever since. I use this keen sense of light to render my local landscape which includes the countryside, coast, marine subjects and London. 

About Battle.
Named after the Battle of Hastings, the most famous conflict on English soil, this compact market town grew up alongside the battleground, tranquil medieval abbey and surrounding ancient woodlands – largely unchanged to this day.
