"Peter has a wonderful way of making everyone feel relaxed. His teaching style is broken down into bite sized chunks enabling each stage of the process to be understood clearly, especially for beginners. His own work is an inspiration."

“This course was exactly what I wanted: an insight into the way a portrait artist approaches a project, with helpful tips and tricks to take home; an opportunity to work in a different style from usual, with the freedom to make mistakes or make magic! I will be keeping an eye on dates for other courses and portrait nights, because I definitely want to come back. As someone who would like to make a business of portraiture, this was certainly a valuable investment. I would do it again and again!”

“Peter's teaching is always fresh and exciting. He seems able to empathise with and encourage those of us who struggle- and praise (but not too much) when confidence is needed. I particularly like the way he paints alongside us - demonstrating and developing his pictures with us. The classes are fun and Peter motivating. What more could a budding artist need?”
