May Russ Culver

Russ Culver paints animal portraits professionally. In May he painted this dog on Canson paper using charcoal, soft pastels and pastel pencils.

April David White Workshop




David White had exhibited his artwork at Crufts this year and was subsequently had a full order book of commissions. His Acrylics Workshop was a very special event, not only because he is in demand, but because he gave a superb course for beginner and experienced artist alike. To name just a few activities: we tested our colours for transparency, mixed colours, applied transparent glazes, painted a monochrome portrait and planned a portrait in more detail. It was a superb day and it started me painting in acrylics, enjoying the versatility of the medium.

April Stephen Foster


Stephen Foster has his own individual watercolour technique. At the April demonstration he painted on Arches 114lb Not paper which was wet on both sides and floating on a film of water.
He usually prefers to avoid too much detail in order to produce an atmospheric landscape and particularly admires Turner.
