Many times over my years of teaching painting, I’ve said to people, “Don’t fuss about trying to improve a dodgy painting, do a new one and do it better.” But......that is not always the best advice – sometimes a painting only needs a little tuning to turn it from a failure to a winner!
So.... my latest DVD “Enjoying painting 4” is about just that – learning how to critique your own work and then knowing what to do to improve a disappointing painting.
I know I have been through the frustration of a failed painting many times over the years so I know what I’m talking about! But I have also enjoyed the sweet taste of success when I have re-thought and rectified the problem.
It’s now available on the DVD page on my website and can be purchased as a disc or a download.
I trust you will enjoy it and it will be a real help in your painting.
I’ve just realised – we’re about to enter 2018. I’m looking forward to it and I’m hoping it will be a year of great progress and fulfilment for all of us.
Just briefly, I should mention one of the highlights of this year for me. In November, ten painters gathered in Glenorchy. They came from England, California, Australia, and New Zealand.
We had a fantastic two weeks together enjoying painting the beautiful landscape around us. I felt honoured to be among such a group and I certainly hope it can happen again – perhaps even on a yearly basis. Thanks guys!
