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!
My first session teaching painting out doors at St Mary’s Island. The weather was fantastic with Blue sky for much of the day and warm conditions. Here is my painting created alongside my learners. Why not book one of my art days.
A wonderful day out was had by all at Jesmond Dene House Hotel yesterday. Fifteen artists signed up for an afternoon of watercolour painting followed by afternoon tea in the garden. This event was arranged by the Laing Art gallery to complement the ‘Enchanted Gardens’ exhibition presently on show in the gallery.
Sold this artwork a few days ago. It was a watercolour I painted many years ago. It had featured in an article in ‘Artists’ magazine. The article was called ‘Grandma’s woods,’ because the watercolours were inspired by my time playing in a wood near my grandmas house when I was a child. The woods were beautiful, but just a little spooky.
