Paint coastal cliffs in my new online Masterclass

Paint coastal cliffs in my new online Masterclass

I’ve launched a new series of online masterclasses, designed to be engaging and approachable, making even the most daunting subjects feel achievable. Whether you’re just starting out or looking to refine your skills, there’s something here for everyone.

I launch each class LIVE online, so if you're interested in catching the next one, sign up to my 'studio news' for all the details.

If you missed the first live one on painting Coastal Cliffs, don't worry, you haven't missed out! I've added it to my online course portal, so you can purchase when you're ready and watch at your convenience.

Online Masterclass #1 Coastal Cliff Painting

Watch, pause, rewind and watch again as you paint along! This painting masterclass unlocks the secrets to painting coastal cliffs with confidence and ease.

You'll get access to a private course area on my website where you'll find the recording and other resources to watch and follow along at your own pace.

Full of useful tips and advice in a relaxed but clear online demonstration. 1 month access with regular reminders to do the exercise so that gentle accountability is 'baked in'!

Let me guide you through my process of simplifying an image, identifying key shapes, colours and values. Then we will build up layers of gradually adjusting and refining areas to produce a light filled painting that is vibrant and full of energy and atmosphere using loose dynamic brushstrokes.
