Weekley Watercolour Classes

I teach weekly watercolour classes during term time from 1.30 - 3.30 on Thursdays and on Fridays 10am till 12noon and 1pm till 3pm at St Johns Church, Hills Road, Cambridge CB2 8RN.

Full Day Watercolour Workshops in Cambridge 

I run Saturday workshops from 10 -4 at the beautiful Edwardian home of fellow artist Rebecca Ledzion. The next workshops are at Rebeccas will on the 19th and 20th of August 2019.

Testimonial - "Thank you very much for a lovely day yesterday. In particular thank you for all your work on preparation, bringing so many resources for us and for the inspiration!  We both enjoyed it. Thanks again Alison and Paul"

I also run family workshops the last one was for a 70th birthday which included three generations, the grand children, parents and grandparents.

Feedback from the 70th Birthday wiorkshop - "Thank you for organising such an enjoyable "birthday surprise" for me, I thoroughly enjoyed "dabbling" in watercolour painting again and I think you have encouraged me enough to persuade me to take it up again as a hobby. I was delighted that everyone else thoroughly enjoyed the experience and were quite surprised and very pleased with their results. Your framing over efforts made all the difference.

Watercolour Flower Paintings

The majority of my work focuses on flower painting both detailed painting and a more loose style. I paint flowers from real life and from photographs  I have taken at Cambridge Botanic Gardens.  

I am often inspried to paint landscapes by places we have visited in particular the North Norfolk Coast and The Isle of Mull where I am a regular visitor, see landscape portfolio.

I am interested in the varied and unusually ways watercolour can be used with different addatives and multiple layers of paint and have been experiementing with different subject matter.

I practiced as an architect in Cambridge for many years and in parallel with architectural design developed my interest in watercolour painting. I specialise in floral painting and coastal landscapes, often drawing inspration from the botanic gardens in Cambridge, the Norfolk coast and the Island of Mull.

I hope to resume teaching weekly watercolour classes at St Johns church, Hills Road, Cambridge CB2 8RN on Thursdays and Fridays during term time. Regular demonstrations, beginners and more experienced welcome. Free car park and tea and coffee

I just wanted to say that I thoroughly enjoyed the workshop. It was a lovely nurturing environment, your demonstrations were excellent and I felt that I learned a great deal. Lunch was delicious too! Please do let me know about any future ones. I would love to come again when I can.
