We are delighted to Welcome guest artist and close studio friend Andrew Swarbrick.

Andrew Swarbrick is an accomplished artist and oil painter, who's years of experience in painting and as a tattoo artist have pushed his artwork further than ever before. Making his latest works the best of his career so far, as the techniques he has learned and developed have come together to form a style of oil painting that is stripped down to its basics, but can be pushed, developed and added to, to take a piece as far as you would like it to go. 

 This three day workshop will give you a chance to learn a new technique of painting from its rawest to most advanced form under the direct guidance of Andrew, opening the door to a medium that is traditionally difficult to learn. We will cover everything from developing an idea, drawing, composition and flow, focal points and lighting, to under-painting, transperents vs opaques, layering, glazing and impasto. The workshop is "Hands-on" in approach and you will learn by watching and taking notes as well as working on your own piece (or pieces) over the three days. A time that will allow you to explore the techniques fully and come to the completion of your work.

 As a teacher Andrew is confident in his ability to convey the information that is relevant and useful to other artists and is easy to pick up, and can dive in to as much depth about any aspect of the techniques or materials as the class demands....
