My second study for the portrait of Antony Worrall Thompson, painted more freely and much smaller than the previous painting at just 12" x 10".

Spent a great day running a workshop for Henley arts and crafts guild in the lovely gardens of Micklems farm. It was so hot i just wanted to jump in the pool!

Another fun day teaching a lovely group of artists portrait painting with palette knives at Art events in Surrey.
“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.”

Enjoyed the weekend teaching palette knife portrait painting to a great bunch of students at Oxford Summer School. Some people decided to stick to working with brushes but still got some impressive results.
