  • Copying of master paintings (copies selected from and reproduced by the National Gallery, Dublin)

  • Bargue drawings.

  • Cast drawing or cast painting. Working from the cast is an excellent way to understand the basics of rendering form before working with a full colour palette. I have a range of beautiful casts is available from which to work.


  • Portraiture from the model either drawing in pencil or charcoal or painting in oil.

  • Painting the nude in oil. Working from the figure is the artist’s most important challenge in understanding nature and learning painting.

  • Still-life painting in oil. Still-life can be an excellent introduction to using a range of colour in oils in describing the atmosphere, form and light of nature.
