Briony strongly believes anyone can be taught to draw and paint despite what your previous experience is. Like any other subject drawing & painting can be approached in step-by-step instructions, and the more often you create the more confident you will become.


Below you can see Briony's portfolio of workshop-based artworks.

DRAWING

From graphite to charcoal, from portraits to landscapes. A medium that tests observation with not much room for error.
The best starting point for any beginner, all pieces shown are curriculum work taught to students.

PASTEL

Best choice for an introduction of colour before you use a brush. Pastels will cover larger areas more easily, and depending on what pastels you choose will blend very well. Briony's preference would be oil pastels due to their paint like texture. Most of the pieces shown are curriculum-based works taught to students.

WATERCOLOUR

When using watercolour paints there are a few rules which will make the process much easier to learn. In particular the materials you use do have an effect on the outcome. The paper you use is particularly important. Once you have your surface prepared watercolour can be very exciting due to its fluidity. Working light to dark can be one of the easiest rules of thumb for beginners to remember due to watercolour paint being transparent.
Below are examples of tutored pieces - A variety of techniques including wet-in-wet and line & wash.

ACRYLIC

Acrylic is one of the most versatile mediums, and one of the most forgiving. Unlike watercolour, acrylic can be less daunting in terms of rectifying work. It is a great place to start if you want to get stuck in and have some fun. 
Below are many examples of finished pieces for the curriculum classes.
