As the lock down of 2020 progressed, I played with the idea of producing online courses. Online is very different from the studio classes, but it’s a platform I’ve become more comfortable with as I spend a lot of time following my favourite painters. So after much thought and inner debate, I decided I’d give it a go.

The approach I’ve taken is to record as I work and explain the ‘why’ as I go – then edit it to take out the hesitations and drying times – and hope that the end result is worth sharing and if not just delete and put it down to experience, as with all painting!

This ‘Off Duty Cherub’is my first attempt, I’ve identified a couple of areas that will be improved next time – but in the spirit of perfection being the enemy of progress I’ve decided to publish and invite commnent. Please give it a try, it’s free!
