Two new courses are on offer where Jason shows you how to paint in the style of Monet and Sargent. Here are some examples of students work created on the Van Gogh course I ran before Christmas. Perhaps these will inspire you to pick up a brush and try your hand at painting in the style of Monet or Sargent with Jasons help and guidance.

The Blagdon Gallery sold one of my quirky tree paintings. Delighted.
It was great to meet some old friends as well as new buyers at the Hearth Art Centre yesterday. It’s always a pleasure to show people my art and get such positive feedback about my work. Thanks to everyone who attended and made it a memorable day.
Sailing on the Balmoral from North Shields to Norway was an unforgettable experience. I took huge numbers of photographs both with my phone and an SLR. I hope they serve me well as reference material for my art and classes in the coming months. Here are a couple I took with my phone last Friday as we sailed across the North Sea.
I was painting at Bolam Lake yesterday with my students. There are still places left on the painting/ sketching days next week. Why not make good use of this long running warm weather and take the plunge to paint out of doors. It’s a wonderful way to spend a day!
