Another enjoyable demonstration, I felt the pressure on this one painting Patrick from life for Eastcote art society.
I think a backdrop and more dramatic lighting would have helped!

“Thank you for a wonderful wokshop on Saturday. It was a delight to meet you and we all loved working with you on the challenge of the palette knife! Not only are you a fine artist but an excellent tutor and I very much appreciated the preparation you made to ensure the students had all they needed to help them create a good painting. It was huge fun as well! We are already looking forward to the next one and I will send you some dates soon.”
