I have been painting for four years and I learnt more in three hours coaching with Richard yesterday than than I have from reading artist magazines over all that period"          C. K.  Port Augusta  SA

 

'I am so pleased I decided to have private coaching with Richard - being able to ask questions throughout the session makes the information so much more meaningful. I have now had several coaching sessions and I'm delighted with the results. Richard's enthusiasm is infectious and he certainly has the right approach and background knowledge (and patience!) to sort out my problems. I've painted for three years, and these sessions are just what I needed to take my art to the next level.'            Pam, Goolwa SA 

 

'Great inspiring teacher. A+  Leanne.  Cairns, Qld

 

 

I wanted to thank you for such a fantastic workshop back in May...... I feel you have given me a new way of looking. The grounding you taught with your thumbnail sized drafts is so good in planning the composition of a painting and it saves a lot of grief in putting your heart and soul into a painting that turns out poorly composed. The whole workshop was completely liberating with all the painting techniques you introduced us to with so many uses of the Atelier mediums that can be applied and mixed with the paints to suit so many different subjects.

 In short I really want to say I loved the whole experience.          Di Watkins, Kalbarri WA
