Carnon Downs Art Group Live Painting Demo

On Wednesday the 11th April I was asked to lead a painting demo for Carnon Downs Art Together group, just around the corner from where my studio is based.

Part of the session was taken up with me painting live and talking through my distinct style, using just a palette knife, and my ideal of just being yourself when you paint. I think I’m best known for my enthusiasm, being approachable and ready to provide helpful advice on painting to those taking part in the sessions. I especially like to encourage people to step out of their comfort zone and try something new. After all, what is the worst that could happen?

After my live demo everyone had a go at applying what they had learnt to their own artwork. I made a point to go around the group and discuss each of their pictures. Encouraging and helping members of the group to explore more exciting and adventurous colours to use within their works. It was great to see everyone pushing the boundaries and experimenting with the help and advice given along with some extra inspiration. 

If you would like to book a live painting demo for your art group or organisation just get in contact to find out more! And don’t forget to stay up-to-date with my latest news on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Thanks for reading . . . Joe.
