About “The One Hour Painting” Approach

presented in most classes

This approach explores the practice of creating a painting from start to finish in one hour.

It teaches you how to think spontaneously and produce more lively and intuitive work.

While simplifying the process, you are able to “say a lot with a little”.

Generous, quick, well placed strokes give you fresher, simpler, more effective paintings.

I do quick demos, focussing on a specific exercise that is designed

to help develop and build those skills.

The approach works well outdoors en plein air, with figures and still life, or photos.

I use oils although the approach works just as well with acrylics.
