Small numbers to ensure good, personalalised tuition
We will find the best vantage points to paint, it’s always weather dependent on where we go but it will be around Findhorn beach and The Park and we have a good wet weather option.
1 July to 31 August 2022
I’m delighted to be showing three paintings at the Castle Gallery’s summer show
‘Bright Winter Pine and Birch’ 64 x 75 cms oil and mixed media on board
‘Low Winter Light’ 38 x 49 cms oil & mixed media on board
‘Tracking the Findhorn River’ 61 x 81 cms on board
What is Creative Flow?
Creative Flow is about making free with water based paint, adding ink, pastel and charcoal if we want. Creating, mark making, detaching from any outcome until we see images rise irresistibly.
We recognise our ego fears and doubts that arise as we explore the materials, false ideas that we can’t do this or will look foolish if we try.
As the colour and texture lead us, there are no mistakes that can be made and it’s such an empowering way to work.
How can I take part?

Collaborative mural making at Art in Nature, Moray Art Centre
Easy beauty! Sun prints, using acrylic paint on cotton
In collaboration with Moray Art Centre
https://www.morayartcentre.org, Moray Wellbeing Hub https://moraywellbeinghub.org.uk and Wild Things! Environmental Education https://wild-things.org.uk , this is a series of creative workshops for those who feel they could benefit from weekly friendly interaction.
Our focus will be the small beauties in surrounding nature from which we will then make art in a number of imaginative ways over the weeks.
No painting experience is necessary, just a desire to open up to your natural creativity.
We begin Saturday 14 May and run 2 – 5pm every week for six weeks.
All you need do is email
email@example.com where these clever folks have secured funding to run these sessions free at point of delivery.
Remember, no art experience necessary so no personal judgements necessary!
My first piece of work for 2019 was a long tall painting called ‘A Stirling Story’ commissioned by Neil Oliver. What a joy to work on!
