Drawings

The first step to learning to paint is to familiarize yourself with the basic principles of drawing. Use proportion, colour and perspective to understand how to transfer what the eye sees on to paper. These are the tools of painting that provide the foundation on which personal style can develop.

Practice the basic principles with the drawing mediums of pencil, ink, pen, charcoal and pastel.

Paintings

Colour is not a separate component of drawing and painting and understanding colour is an integral part of learning to see. The colours of the spectrum are seen in objects that reflect and absorb these rays to varying degrees. Appreciating the effect that light can have on colour will do much to enhance your technique and style. Judging colour relationships and observing what happens when paints mix, will enable you to successfully mix and apply color to your work.

Watercolour. Oil. Acrylic. Tempera. Pastel. Gouache
Each medium is viewed separately paying particular attention to surfaces, paints, equipment, techniques and a gallery section to see the finished results.

Portraits

Learning to see the subject is as important as painting or drawing it successfully. Each one presents its own challenges and this section concentrates on overcoming them. Each subject has its own characteristics and preferred starting point from which to develop your skills. Of all the subjects which an artist is likely to tackle, the human face is without doubt the most challenging. Even experienced painters feel a twinge of anxiety every time they begin a new portrait, because each one is unique and presents a fresh set of problems.

Cards. Crafts

Cards and Crafts are little artworks. Using few simple techniques, everybody can create his own card. It is hard to start. Just give it a try and have fun.
