'David’s unique, creative and enthusiastic approach to his teaching and the wide variety of subjects he uses make him a very inspiring teacher. He is also a talented artist and is extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of art. His classes are friendly, supportive and relaxed and his belief that everyone can learn to draw and paint gave me the encouragement to start sketching. I recommend his classes and workshops to complete beginners like myself as well as to more experienced painters.'
"We booked David for two days to help us with our drawing skills. The days were very well organised and varied and the time passed so quickly. David made us do some quite challenging subjects but was constantly on hand to help and demonstrate and keep us amused with his infectious sense of humour. Blondie came too and was a very well behaved and popular member of the class!!"
"My husband was delighted with his lesson with David. He came back with 2 lovely paintings including a view that was very special to us and which he has been wanting to paint for years. David arranged everything for me and even provided a lovely card explaining the gift that my husband was able to open on his birthday."
'I have attended many watercolour classes over the years but none has ever come near matching David's project-based blend of technical instruction, group demonstration and individual coaching, all carried out in a very friendly and confidence-building atmosphere'.
"Having happily attended David's workshops for a few years now, and working with different media, I can honestly say that my skills have greatly improved in drawing, botanical illustration and watercolour painting. I have also learned so much about artists, different cultures and periods of art and in the process have become more observant and get great enjoyment from the sessions."
