Todays demonstration shows how to paint a bowl of roses using watercolour paints. I always find watercolour extremely fun to work with and when done correctly it can yield some beautiful results, especially when painting flowers or plants.
I hope you enjoy this weeks demonstration and if any of you have had a go at painting any flowers yourself, in watercolour or any other medium, please do contact me via my website to show me your results.

I am very happy to announce that my painting 'Flight', pictured above, was voted by the public as their favourite piece displayed at the recent Broadstone Art Societies week-long exhibition.
I thoroughly enjoyed creating this piece and I did so whilst demonstrating to my student how to plan & paint a background first before adding a subject into it. The finished piece shows movement, bright colours & beautiful nature at it's best.
The full article is pictured above and thank you to anyone who voted for this piece as their favourite.

Todays video demonstrates how to paint a male portrait. I have always enjoyed drawing & painting portraits & watching the model come to life on the page. It certainly takes a lot of practise and portraits are certainly not easy; but with the right methods anyone can start to do great quality work.
