I believe everybody has a creative side and its my job to help people who want to improve their current techniques and skills to a higher level or help a complete beginner start their journey of discovering their hidden artistic talents. I can assure you
I won an award for the best painting voted by the publicat Salisburys Small painting competition in 2008 I won the Simon Combes Award 2010 at TAWSI for 'Trouble Waters'. Please see below link to web-page.http://www.weebly.com/weebly/main.phpI
I have been painting for more than 30 years and a professional artist, with the luxury of my own studio in the garden!
I am a photographic realist artist. I seek to bring as much detail and depth to my paintings and drawings as possible.
My main areas of work are portraits, animals, historical and fantasy. Pastels, oils, acrylics and graphite are my main mediums, but I never let the opportunity to pass to experiment with new or other mediums to present a painting in a different light, or to seek to enhance my subject.
I run weekly art classes and weekend workshops in my studio in Portsmouth covering oils, acrylics, pastels and graphite. If you are interested in developing or enhancing your skills in these areas, please see my website for details or ring me on 02392 388449. http://www.alanlongmore.com/workshops--tuition.html
