[ The course is] excellent so far. Really like the subtitles indicating the colours used . Learnt more about how to apply thinly by stumbling the paint layer by layer without losing the underpainting colours.
I just finished watching your video demonstration and I thought it was excellent. I also enjoy following your blog posts. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and expertise in such inspiring ways. And thank you for inviting us into your studio with this video.
I feel so much more confident with oils now, it's opened up a whole new world!
It really is fascinating, and so instructive, to watch a painting grow from the first few searching brushstrokes through to the final refining touches. I can't recommend it highly enough.
No time lapse: all in real time.

Is this a course or a demonstration?
This is a painting demonstration with commentary, introductions and structured topic discussions. So perhaps an ‘educational demonstration’ ?
So, how does this course work?
When you click the ‘watch now’ button you are taken to the check out page on Teachable (an online platform for courses, where this course is located). You can pay there and then, and you will get access to the ‘curriculum’ straight away.
How do I log into the course?
When you enroll in a course, you’ll receive an email confirmation that contains a link to the course. You can use this link to open your course, or you can type the school or course page URL into the address bar of your web browser. This article will explain a lot.
How long do I have access to the course?
How does lifetime access sound? The course will remain available for as long as I will keep it live. After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own. There is even a Teachable IOS app so you can watch your courses on your iphone.
Do you offer personal tuition with the course?
No, this course is something you can watch in your own time. If you feel inspired to get painting yourself I would be delighted to hear it, but I do not offer personal critiques or tuition with this course.
Can we interact with other students?
There is a comment section below every lesson. Do leave a comment and even share your own attempts at painting drapery.Feel free to offer supportive comments to your fellow students as well!
Join my new online artists community The Art Cafe where you can get feedback from me, from the others and discuss and chat about art!
Can I turn the music off?
In each video two asterisks ** will appear whenever a voice-over starts or ends. When you see the asterisks you can mute or unmute the video and so only hear the voice over and keep the rest of the videos quiet.
Is there a commentary throughout?
Almost every section has a short introduction in which I explain what I am going to do in the next part. During the demo videos I talk now and then but there are many hours of just quiet music (which you can mute if you prefer).
How long is this course?
