“[ The course is] excellent so far. Really like the subtitles indicating the colours used . Learnt more about how to apply thinly by stumbling the paint layer by layer without losing the underpainting colours. ”

A Happy Student

“It really is fascinating, and so instructive, to watch a painting grow from the first few searching brushstrokes through to the final refining touches. I can't recommend it highly enough.”

A Happy Student

Some final thoughts


Is this a course or a demonstration?

This is a painting demonstration with commentary, introductions and structured topic discussions. So perhaps an ‘educational demonstration’ ?

Do you offer personal tuition with the course?

This is a demonstration with personal support from me, your tutor, and from your fellow students. The course has its own private community where you can post your questions, comments and of course your own work for feedback and support.

How long do I have access to the course?

Forever! Well, within reason... The course will remain available for as long as I will keep it live. After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own. There is even a Mighty Network IOS and Android app so you can watch your courses on your phone.

How long is this course?

There is a  total of 8 hours of video + additional articles.

Can I turn the music off?

In each video two asterisks ** will appear whenever a voice-over starts or ends. When you see the asterisks you can mute or unmute the video and so only hear the voice over and keep the rest of the videos quiet.

Is there a commentary throughout?

Almost every section has a short introduction in which I explain what I am going to do in the next part. During the demo videos I talk now and then but there are many hours of just quiet music (which you can mute if you prefer). 

Can we interact with other students?

Yes! The course ‘lives’ within its own private community where all students can post questions, comments and work. Don’t be shy, come say hello!
