It had been a decade since I last held teaching classes. I have just been busy with other projects and ideas. However, I began to realise how much I missed teaching. So I decided to host a Sunday class (11am – 6pm) just for women at my home. This was last Sunday, it was a wonderful day with 15 enthusiastic students. Many of whom hadn’t painted since their childhood! Some were more experienced. Because it was a small class I was able to offer a fair bit of individual guidance. Here are a few photographs from the happy event.
My next class is on Sunday 24th September. There are a couple of tickets left. The classes are taught in Danish.
Today, as the late summer breeze filtered through my studio door I have been enjoying some more work on this young girl portrait. Still, a little way to go, but what an exciting painting this has been so far. For the first time, I have ventured into surrealism territory by adding a 3D floating piece of paper with my trademark silhouettes. I don’t know quite where I’ll end up with it, but here’s the result so far with a photograph of a corner of our Danish terrace garden.
