This week we have added the 20th Tree Lesson in Studio which looks at the use of a cut stencil. I am loving the process of building a truly comprehensive library of videos. With new videos added every week to Studio it won’t take long before other sections of Studio are reaching these kinds on numbers.
I also share my personal journey this week, talking about creating this watercolour in a video in the talking art section.
You can now watch both parts of my recent facebook live broadcast, in which I painted a watercolour from the photograph, seen below, on my professional facebook page:
We are now adding new content to studio weekly. This week we have added a new tree video, a new Sargent video and a new talking art video about this painting.
As the months roll on in lockdown, some people find it increasingly difficult to get motivated or become enthusiastic about hobbies they were passionate about in the past. Studio may help those people regain their art mojo . It’s a great way to focus the mind, to take your work to the next level and share the artistic journey with others who have subscribed to Studio. So why not tell your friends about Studio, if you have already subscribed, and get others more motivated to make art.
You can now subscibe to Studio for just 3 months to see if its right for you. So why not sign up now and re-ignite your passion for painting and drawing.
Tired of looking for something interesting to do while you are stuck at home? Done the garden, the housework and now want something more mentally stimulating to pass the time? Then take a look at STUDIO – Jason’s video based educational website. It has so much to offer:
Courses in painting
Courses in drawing
Educational packs that go alongside lessons so that you have images and information to work from at your own pace.
Need more social contact – You can explore the chat rooms to discuss your progress with other students and post your work. Jason also provides written feedback on your posts.
All this for the price of a cup of coffee a week!!!
In his new course Jason explores composition, unravelling it’s mysteries, showing models of construction used by professional artists. This course could be undertaken by someone new to art or an advanced painter looking for ways to professionalise the look of their art.
Studio is regularly updated with new videos, building a growing library of educational material for you to explore.
Places are still available on the following courses starting in October: Creative drawing with ink and watercolour, Colourful Acrylics, Paint colourful watercolours like John Singer-Sargent, Pen and wash for beginners – see the courses pages for full details.
The course lasts 4 weeks in Jesmond at St Georges church on a Tuesday afternoon between 1:45 to 3:45. Starts on the 3rd of September. Don’t miss you chance to learn how to create a sophisticated drawing using only line to show tone and form. Learn some of the techniques used by the old master as well as modern sketchy approaches used by artists today.
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.
….a course in the art of colour mixing and colour use.
Subject – The course is designed to help you improve your colour mixing. It will also provide you with a grounding in colour theory to help you make informed choices when you plan and paint your pictures.
