Where to Start


Where to Get Started?


Pastel Fan?

Take a look at The Pastel Place course; an in-depth but fun pastel painting course that covers everything from mark making to framing. Or, if you are a total newbie to pastel, start with the Pastel for Beginners course.
Then why not check out the mini course Colour Mixing in Pastel.
There are also regular monthly workshops that cover pastel painting. 


Join a workshop for hands-on personal support within an online class setting. Or visit the Members Corner in The Art Cafe. Here you will receive personal support though art work feedback, journaling, and a private community.

In Need of Personal Coaching?


Looking for a Friendly Community?

Join the free and public Art Cafe for lots of friendly support, monthly challenges and plenty of like-minded people!

Into Oils?

Check out the Painting Drapery course for a real-time painting demonstration, or join one of the monthly workshops for hands-on support in a week-long painting session. I am working on a new portrait painting course (stay tuned, due late Summer 2020)!



Join the regular workshops where portraiture often features as a subject matter. Or try out the new Classical Portrait Drawing course to fine tune your proportions and likeness.
Become a better pastel painter all round (including lots of portraiture!) in The Pastel Place course.

The Paint box is full of goodies: short tutorials, check lists, articles and interviews.
Our monthly workshops are a great place to try your hand at something different every time. In a friendly class setup we work though the steps of creating a painting over 5 days.
