A Fond Farewell to one of my students…

Saoirse Godbold is returning to England. She is only just turned 10 years old – this is her self portrait. She is a very talented young girl and we will miss her in the class.

Curious Pheasant draws attention at Myartclass..

I brought in a rare example of a Reeves Pheasant for my teenage students to practice their pastel painting technique..

Our next 5 day Intensive Portfolio Preparation Course is scheduled for 1st July – 5th July 2010. All NCAD applicants should have a copy of the brief and be preparing their ‘Mind Maps’ in readiness!

Lough Cutra Castle..What a great day..

We had a fabulous time at the castle on Sunday. Susie was the perfect hostess – we were made to feel like kings and queens in her beautiful home. We had two models for our day of life drawing. Joanne sat for the morning session and Becky, our jockey, sat for the afternoon. As you will see from the following pics, some excellent work was produced.
