Preview of your FIRST lesson...

People often ask: Why do I need to draw before I can paint? Why can’t I just start painting?

The answer lies in the fact that whatever marks we make with a pencil, we also make with a brush. Color hides mistakes. The best way to learn to paint is to first produce those painting methods in grayscale (black and white)
Starting to paint without understanding what types of marks or strokes you have available to you, will always leave you at a disadvantage. You will get frustrated with yourself not knowing and understanding why some techniques work and some don’t.
There is specific marks used for drawing which also applies to painting.....

    Please, I am outside South Africa, how do I join your 32day painting course. I’ve been finding it difficult to paint even when I have already made a good drawing with pencil.

    1. Hi there
      Try to follow the online videos and blog posts. The only other way is for u to come to a week art class with me.

  3. Louise Brooke says:

    Hi, I am very keen to join your 32 day painting course! Is it too late to apply now to start next week Wednesday? Are Wednesday morning classes still at the Durbanville studio, or have they moved to Meerendal?
