Promises kept & Valencia Art Weekend

Promises kept


Promise kept 60x60cm oil on canvas €1650

This painting is from an old country house in Lahinch in Co. Claire called Moy House.


Valencia Inspirational workshop

Four days of craft and technique balanced with inspiration and creativity with painting and hands on practical exercises.

If you follow me online or know my work then you will know to expect a good dose of positivity and a bit of fun!


The weekend workshop follows the same ground as my two day workshops but allows you time to put what we learn into practice. We will do practical exercises in colour theory, mixing colour, neutrals and tonal values and there will be time to paint at least one small painting to take home with you.

Craft and Poetry

Craft refers to the technique involved in whatever creative pursuit we engage in, for me that’s painting. About half of our time on the course is spent looking at the basic principles and techniques of painting. In particular in the way I paint which is called alla prima.

The remainder of our time will focus on the Poetry. That’s the creative talent within you. How to encourage it, how to find inspiration and continue to be inspired and how to get past all the obstacles that stop us creating and improving.

The workshops are for you if you are a creative person and would like to learn more about painting. You will also benefit if you are already an artist but need something to get you moving again.

Either way, I mean to encourage and motivate you and get you fired up to paint.
