Demos and Talks

Demonstrations, Talks and Workshops for Art Groups

It is always a great pleasure to be asked to demonstrate or talk to art groups.  I am very happy to travel outside East Anglia and enjoy the interaction with other art enthusiasts. I can offer talks and demonstrations on a range of topics. For a first visit, many art groups request my demonstration/talk about the way I approach working in coloured pencils on large, prepared wooden panels. Not just a demonstration, I bring a lot of my finished work with me and show how the techniques work in practice. I also include lots of useful information for artists who work in other media. I also have a specific talk on the subject of “Composition” which is based around a Powerpoint presentation. Originally, prepared as a one-off presentation to the UKCPS AGM in 2014, it is now enhanced with more examples. I can also offer an evening demonstration on direct observational drawing from a “live” subject. This demonstration, and the presentation about composition, require access to a digital projector and screen at the venue. Please get in touch via my Contacts page for further details of costs and availability.
