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.

Bags packed, ready to go!
With a hall full of canvases, multipacks of wet wipes, kitchen rolls, sketch books, tape, scissors, liquin, linseed oil, OMS, tea towels, dust pan and brush... It can only mean one thing - masterclass time!
Canvases, a new lamp...
Students are decending upon Belfast to attend the Oils workshop with 'maestro' Michael John Angel, who arrived from Florence this afternoon in a heavy shower of rain - hopefully a pleasant change from the heat wave in Italy. I am delighted that he has returned for a second year - we are honoured to welcome him.
Gloves, medium, paint...
It's amazing how much you can fit into a Golf - my student Mark did a wonderful job of squeezing 20 Ikea stools in as well as drawing boards, all the canvases and miscellaneous Others.
We spent the afternoon preparing the studio, and it's all set. For the next five days Mr Angel will guide students through the techniques of Bouguereaux - everyone is very excited and can't wait to get started!
