Class Demos

Below are small demonstrations in oil that I do during the weekly classes.  Beginners in my representational art program follows a unique method of learning, by studying the works of some of the best late & contemporary impressionist and post-impressionist master painters from around the world.  This approach helps them get a better understanding of the design elements needed for a successful painting and to develop important technical skills which are critical when taking the next step towards working from life, painting outside and composing works using their own photographs across different genres.  The artists and paintings that we study are therefore carefully selected for the learn how to paint program. Their paintings are not copied, instead they are used as academic tools and pulled apart, analyzed and repainted to learn as much as possible and with some magnificent and interesting end results on the canvas of every beginner painter who attempts them.
