Catherine – July 2019

Clare is a really thoughtful and insightful tutor, who draws on her own talents and experience to develop and nurture the individual styles within her class. She strikes the right balance between encouragement and constructive feedback, referencing well known and less well known artists to give inspiration when needed. I started her class without much experience of oil painting, but feel that her classes have not only helped me to paint more dynamically, but also to ‘see’ the visual image in a different way, looking beyond the physical outlines of a form to find the light and shadow.
