It is with very mixed feelings and emotions that I have decided it is time to stop my regular watercolour classes. Over the last 27 years I have made some wonderful friends and met lovely people all with an interest in art through the classes. It's been a priviledge to teach and I know I shall keep in contact with many.
I shall continue to do some 1-1 classes and once lockdown is over and we are back to a semblance of normality, I may do some workshops, particularly in the winter months. Any pre-booked 1-1's I will honour once lockdown is over.
Thank you to everyone who has come to me over the years, it has been a pleasure to teach you.
I shall be continuing with my own painting and will welcome anyone who would like to visit my studio and hope you feel able to bring some of your own paintings to show me! I am still here for any painting advise!
"Being a participant in one of Becky's art courses is a relaxed, enjoyable but challenging experience. She manages to provide a thoughtful balance between practical demonstrations of technique at the right time with individual and personalised support to help members of the group develop their confidence and improve their skill levels. I ended the day enthused and feeling that I wanted to get to work and develop my own ideas. A genuinely satisfying happening. Thanks Becky."

''Whilst I have drawn and painted in watercolours for many years, two days of tuition from Becky has helped me to far better understand the subtleties of pigments, colour mixing and gaining confidence to use lots more water. My work now 'flows' better and a whole new horizon has dawned on me. I strongly recommend Becky's patient guidance to others who might want to broaden their skills.''

''I have just spent a wonderful day of painting with Becky Samuelson.
Having not painted for a while I had lost much needed confidence which was instantly restored with the expert help from Becky.
I learnt many new brush stokes and techniques during the day working with both acrylic and oils and came away very happy with my creations.
I would not hesitate to recommend Becky more highly''.

''Even on grey days, Becky put the colour into my painting. She is an enthusiastic and inspiring teacher and spending the day on one of her courses with a group of like minded painters boosted my confidence and improved my skills tremendously''.
'I thought Becky's watercolour workshops expertly combined exposition and demonstration with support tailored to every person's needs - all delivered with warmth and humour that reassured and encouraged. I came away feeling inspired, eager to start practising the skills I'd learned. Thank you, Becky! Liz Martin
"Becky shares her knowledge freely and her enthusiasm is infectious
making her watercolour course really enjoyable. It was a pleasure to be
a student again." B Taylor

WORKSHOPS AT THE BEMBRIDGE SAILING CLUB
in the current situation, workshops are temporarily suspended
We welcome you to the art workshops at the Bembridge Sailing club. Each can be booked individually or you can pick as many as you like!
Each workshop is suitable for all, whether you are a complete beginner, an improver or perhaps just wanting to increase your confidence. I want these workshops to be informative but fun.
Although each workshop has a theme, I will include aspects that are common to all subjects whether it be the main techniques required, composition and drawing techniques, colour mixing, perspective or tone. Please do contact me with any concerns or queries.
If you have always wanted to have a go at painting, why not make this the year!
Please bring your own watercolour materials; an equipment list can be supplied… but please bring lots of watercolour paper!
Also useful is a sketch pad and a small watercolour pad to test colour.
