Easel Weasel 1 day Saturday Art Workshops - Derbyshire Peak District



Please come along and join me at my art workshops in acrylics, linocut printing or soft pastels in the beautiful Derbyshire Peak District. Whether you are on holiday or living nearby, a novice or experienced - everyone is welcome. The Saturday workshops are located at my home studio in Whatstandwell Derbyshire.​ I am a professional artist and I have recently appeared on Sky Arts Landscape Artist of the Year competition as a heat semi-finalist, I have exhibited with the Royal Society of British Artists and Royals Society of Marine Artists at Mall Galleries, London. You have a choice of working in acrylics and/or mixed media, soft pastels or linocut printing. Subjects include: landscapes, still life, abstract, portraits, etc. The workshops are fun, relaxing and informative. I have a relaxed and informative approach to working with acrylics and mixed media and other techniques. I was a professional muralist for 11 years, specialising in trompe l'oeil (trick of the eye) techniques. Although photo realism painting in acrylics was essential in creating a painting illusion, I have also worked more recently with impasto and mixed media using acrylics which is an enjoyable and liberating experience. I was a former member of the Association of Professional Muralists and have appeared on television and radio.
