Peters ”Bedrock” course offers a 10 week course on the essential skills of drawing and painting.

Here he will cover the core skills required to build your confidence in progressing your paintings. It will include: basic drawing skills and ways of looking; composition and flow; tone and colour; colour mixing; and how to tackle the trickier elements of perspective in a simple way. These skills will then be employed when painting step by step. He will set exercises reinforcing the lessons and there will be plenty of opportunity for feed back. This course is for Oil, Acrylic and Mixed Media painters who want to develop a strong foundation on which they can build.

We highly recommend you join his private Facebook group “Bedrock” – which is coming soon. We’ll let you know when it’s up and running, it’s planned for early January. It will be a place where he’ll chat live, demo, give freebies and tips. Where you will be able to share your work, and comment on work displayed.
