The Classes 

You can view some of the lovely work produced in the classes recently

on the 'Students Work' page.

Students please note that if you need to contact me in the morning before the class, an email is best, and please send before 9.00am, when I check my emails before leaving home.

I am currently running three classes at Writtle village hall:

Life Drawing class.

The next class will be March 8th, and the model will be Terry.

The dates for Spring term 2024 will be: January 19th, February 2nd, 16th, March 8th, 22nd.

If you would like to join the life drawing class, please contact me - I currently have places available.  

I also run a 'drop in' list for people who would like to attend the odd class, and who I contact if any regular student is unable to attend a particular class.

Tuesday and Wednesday morning classes.

These are following my usual format, with a varied programme of short projects.





The next class will be on February 27th.

We will start the new project - Maps, after half term.


The next class will be on February 28th.

This will be the second week of the project: Pop Art. 

We have looked at different ways to approach this subject, so please bring whatever medium you have decided on, and your subject matter to work from.

This is a link to a short video which will give a useful introduction to the subject:



And this one gives a little more information:


The dates for the Spring Term 2024 will be:

Tuesday - January 9th to Tuesday March 26th 

Wednesday - January 17th to Wednesday March 27th.

Half term will be February 20th and 21st.

I offer three email watercolour courses:

Just One Brush, More Brushes, and No Brushes.

Each course comprises 8 pdf pages, packed with information, ideas and exercises, with plentiful coloured illustrations. 


The courses take the student through a series of steps, exploring the handling of brushes and other implements, and the nature of the paint itself, and encouraging a deeper understanding of the medium.

The exercises allow the student to practice and experiment with different techniques and concepts,

meanwhile growing in confidence as they build their skills.

They have been very well received by my students, so I am now happy to offer them more widely. 

They are designed to be worked on in order, but in fact each one can be studied on it's own.

Please get in touch if you would like to purchase any of the three courses.

£25.00 each.


I am not posting new challenges at present, but all the challenges can be found here,

 if you feel like having a go.
