Carol Penn reviewed: Pen and wash

"The line and wash workshop was all that I hoped for and more. Liz organised a well structured day with plenty of time for experimenting. There was a wealth of information, demonstration and every implement we could wish for to try out, including the cola pen. We also had good quality paper for a realistic outcome. This was all set in the beautiful surroundings of Micklems Farm. It couldn’t have been better. For 2 beginners we both felt we had learnt so much and in a welcoming atmosphere. I think you may guess that we had a great day!"

Liz Chaderton Artist responded:

" Hi Carol, thank you so much for such a lovely review. I am delighted you learnt lots and I hope you have the foundation to go on and explore this fabulous combination of media. I do so love pen and wash!"

Anne Willis reviewed: Watercolour on canvas

"Liz is most welcoming, very experienced, an excellent tutor and very generous in sharing her knowledge. I had already been painting watercolours on canvas but I learned so much on the day - it was invaluable to have her guidance, input and encouragement. All materials were provided and they were excellent quality which was very much appreciated. She demonstrated, guided and encouraged step by step - it would also have been suitable for inexperienced artists as Liz tailored her approach according to the student The venue was charming and very suitable for purpose (although not suitable due to its age for anyone with severe mobility issues) in a most beautiful countryside setting. A good selection of hot drinks etc were available at all times. I travelled a long way to attend the course staying overnight nearby and I am so glad i did. Really pleased with the course and would highly recommend it and Liz and I would love to attend more of her courses in the future."

Liz Chaderton Artist responded:

" Thank you so much Anne for such a lovely and thoughtful review. I am so pleased you found lots of new information in the day. It is always a challenge to start from scratch but not bore the more experienced! You are right too that the venue is not wheelchair accessible or ideal for those with a lot of mobility issues and I always check with people just in case. I look forward to seeing your work and hope you can come back in the future too. Lizx"

"Liz is a very knowledgeable, kind and generous teacher. The facilities were perfect light and spacious and in a beautiful setting. Everything had been organised to provide a perfect day in an excellent learning environment. Liz is very generous in terms of her knowledge which she has built over many years. She is also a skilled teacher who can bring out the best in all individuals. The day was a joy in its entirety I have come away filled with enthusiasm for more line and wash experimentation and have some projects already planned. Thank you Liz."

Jane irvine reviewed: Pen and wash

"Wonderful day. Liz is a excellent tutor giving helpful tips and advice and making the day very relaxed. I enjoyed pen and wash and loved trying all the different pens that Liz had bought along. The Micklems Farm barn studio and gardens are just the place to get away from it all and just sit and paint. Certainly will book another of Liz’s workshops."

Liz Chaderton Artist responded:

" Hi Jane, Thank you so much for the lovely review and for coming along on the workshop. I agree that Micklems is just such an inspiring place! Hope to see you back there soon. Lx"

"Just spent a wonderful day with Liz in the beautiful setting. Liz paced the entire day well with periods of instruction and supervised practice. Not sure I’m ever going to be an artist, but really looking forward to using the resources provided and experimenting further."

" Hi Sally, thank you for the lovely review. You have all the techniques and tools now, so you can experiment. It’s a muscle which needs to be exercised, so the more you practice the stronger you’ll get. Above all, enjoy it ?"

Tracey Bengeyfield reviewed: Watercolour on canvas

"The course was absolutely brilliant. Liz was very welcoming and the venue was well organised and much thought and consideration had been given to making the environment relaxed, friendly and Covid safe. Liz is a brilliant artist and tutor, she was very informative and was so open about her process, techniques and tips - which she generously shared. The day was paced well and gave plenty of time to experiment and learn new techniques before applying them to a finished piece. She gave several group demonstrations throughout the day which showed each step clearly. This made the course really accessible to both beginners and more experienced artists alike. Throughout the day, Liz was on hand to give encouragement, advice and the benefit of her vast watercolour knowledge which was inspirational. I can’t praise the day highly enough and would recommend her courses. She has a great teaching style that encourages you to be free and without the constraints of lots of watercolour ‘rules’ which was so refreshing. Thank you for such a great day!"

Liz Chaderton Artist responded:

" Thank you so much Tracey, both for taking the time to write a review and for the review itself! I’m so pleased you enjoyed it. You are obviously a very experienced artist so it means a lot to me that you got lots out of the day. I hope you are now a little hooked on painting watercolours on canvas!"

Yvonne Gillespie reviewed: Painting animals in watercolour

"Another thoroughly enjoyable day with Liz Chaderton painting animals. Liz is an extremely talented artist, an excellent tutor, both patient and constantly encouraging and giving individual attention wherever needed. Her enthusiasm is so stimulating and motivating. I have struggled to paint for years and yet she has the ability to inspire me to get painting again. She demonstrates with easy to understand tips and practical guidance. The atmosphere is relaxed and enjoyable and I would recommend her classes to anyone wanting to paint in watercolour at any level. The day just flew by."

Liz Chaderton Artist responded:

" Thank you so much Yvonne! That’s a lovely review and I am so pleased you enjoyed it. The day does fly, doesn’t it? But that’s the joy of getting lost in watercolour. Please keep painting!"

sylvia french reviewed: Watercolour on canvas

"I really enjoyed the day yesterday and it was great to try something new with using watercolours on canvas. Liz's instructions were all very clear and delivered with great enthusiasm and knowledge. We produced two pieces of work and came home with a prepared canvas for our own project. It was interesting to see how watercolours reacted to the canvas and to work on the technique of layering. I would thoroughly recommend Liz's courses."

Liz Chaderton Artist responded:

" Thank you so much for the lovely review, and I’m pleased you enjoyed it. I hope you use your canvas to paint something at a more leisurely pace! Hope to see you again soon."

Madeleine reviewed: Dip pens for line and wash

"This was the second time that I have spent the day at Micklems farm with Liz leading a day of art instruction. Both “painting animals in watercolour “and yesterday’s “pen and wash” were such fun. There was a huge variety of inks and pens to try out ,and later in the day ,to choose a subject and pen to paint a picture. Liz has so much talent, both in teaching and her art work is amazing. I heartily recommend her courses. They are a wonderful day of making art in an exceptional studio in an amazing venue."

Liz Chaderton Artist responded:

" Hi Madeleine, thank you so much for such a glowing review. That is really appreciated. I'm glad you enjoyed the day and hope that it has given you lots of food for thought and inspiration too. Hope to see you again soon! Lizx"

Sue Lowe reviewed: Dip pens for line and wash

"A lovely relaxed day. Liz is a great teacher and explained everything so clearly. I learnt a lot about the variety of inks and pens that can be used, and had fun experimenting with different effects. I can recommend Liz’s classes and I’ll certainly be booking more! ?"

" Hi Sue, thanks for such a lovely review. I am so pleased you had a fun inky day and I would love to see more puffins!"

clare Spencer reviewed: Dip pens for line and wash

"Fantastic day, didn't realize there are so many different inks or pens. Liz explained the different methods and tools to develop my line and wash pictures, then let us loose to experiment which was fun. I would say to anyone its great way to find out what method and tools suit your style or push you out of your comfort zone and help to develop your skills as an artist. I would always recommend Liz’s courses to anyone they are well planned and Liz is so helpful with any questions thrown her way. The venue was light and spacious a beautiful setting to spend a day developing my art."

Liz Chaderton Artist responded:

" Hi Clare - thank you so much for such a lovely review! It was great to see you and I am glad you enjoyed it. Now to get your studio finished!!!!"

Victoria Smith reviewed: Lively portraits in watercolour

"Always a thoroughly enjoyable day painting with Liz Chaderton. She is extremely knowledgeable, accomplished in her field and teaches very well with much explanation of the process involved. There are plenty of examples of her work that help clarify the topic and there is an overhead camera that helps everyone see clearly the demonstrations. It is always a lovely group of like-minded people and Liz puts everyone at ease. The venue is excellent too ... light, airy with beautiful gardens to relax and take a break. All materials and provided and plenty of material to inspire!"

"I thoroughly enjoyed my day with Liz Painting Portraits. Liz is an excellent tutor, demonstrating in easy stages with very helpful advice and tips. I found the class well paced, with excellent content and very stimulating. I came away motivated to paint more and with a better understanding of portrait painting. For me Liz is one of the best art tutors and I would definitely recommend her classes."
