As I am concentrating on my own painting development, a forthcoming exhibition and leading two tours to Croatia this year, I am only offering two workshops at my Studio-Gallery in 2018.


Come and join me for one of my five-day intensive workshops at my Studio-Gallery in beautiful Yackandandah.

The focus of my teaching (after 30 years), is to assist students to become better artists, rather than simply helping them produce pretty pictures - it has to be more than that!  My studio is the best place for me to do this.


WATERCOLOUR FOR BEGINNERS - For those who wish to start painting in watercolour and don't know where to start. For those who have done a little watercolour, but feel as though they are off to a bad start. For those who want to be given the correct and "true" information about watercolour, rather than the false information often given. For those who simply wish to have fun and learn at the same time.


WATERCOLOUR REBOOT - For those who have "lost their mojo". For those who feel as though they are going through the motions, or simply don't know what to paint. This course will include a refresher of some important fundamental principles, correct some bad habits and inspire you to paint again with enthusiasm and the love you once had. Come along to reignite that love you had for watercolour.

WATERCOLOUR FOR BEGINNERS - As you are a beginner, you will most likely need to buy equipment. Information about equipment can be found here. If you already have equipment, it may be a simple case of supplementing what you have.

WATERCOLOUR REBOOT - You will most likely already have appropriate equipment. For interest here is my general list of materials. Note: you don't need to rush out and buy these as it is just a guide, just bring what you usually use.

WATERCOLOUR REBOOT - This will be suitable for all levels, however those with little or no experience should do the beginners workshop.
