I am an artist who loves teaching. I believe that drawing what you See is the secret to great painting. Here I share some of my paintings and lots of my students artworks - straight from my studio to yours.

Drawing - colour pencil, crisps. (student work)
It's always a challenge to stretch students so that they are both engaged as well as challenged. And when I'm undecided on subject matter, the wisest thing is not to think about it, but to go out and LOOK.
This week, I saw...CRISPS!! It's a few years since I gave this as a subject, and it was great to revisit.
Here are two wonderful studies by students in Belfast. Neither is finished as they only had two hours. They used colour pencils. Delicious.
