Merry Christmas from Ashley & Denise

We would like to say a BIG thank-you to all of you who have supported us in the last year, come along to the workshops, painting holidays and exhibitions and also to those of you who have followed Ashley in his most successful year to date.

Our last 2 workshops were very well received . From the feedback of  the 'Drawing & Painting the Life Model' workshop, it seems that everyone enjoyed the experience and would like to do something similar soon: we have St Breward Village Hall booked for Sat 23 Feb & Sat 1st March, so pencil in the dates, more details to follow early in the New Year!

Ashley's most recent 'Freedom in Painting ' workshop in Canterbury Christchurch University was once again a full house with 16 artists. The workshop began with explorations into colour and as always there were a new set of challenges.

This time everyone was asked to think about the word 'Libra' in advance of the workshop as a means of investigating the idea of balance/imbalance in painting. Everone worked really hard and some interesting work emerged by the end of the second day. Here are some shots of some of the paintings in progress.
