Teaching art in the Algarve.
Nice to get away from the grey skies, teaching portrait painting to a great bunch of artists in the Algarve. “I thought Mark was great. He was informative and gentle in his approach and has instilled in me a sense of ‘breaking down’ in steps the task of portrait painting.
In addition it was nice to meet new people.” SALLY
Portrait painting workshop.
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.”
This is a first for me, a pet portrait demonstration in acrylics.
I did this one for Winslow and district art society in less than 2 hours.
