Using techniques developed by myself I believe I can teach anyone who can hold a pencil to draw or paint portraits and figurative art.
I run weekly portrait & figurative classes and the occasional weekend workshop and I'm also available to provide workshops to art groups or for private tuition.
On most of my weekend courses all materials are provided as part of the price and you get to take the paints / pastels home with you afterwards

my name is Graham Hanks and I'm a figurative artist from Doncaster England, I used to be a professional sculptor many years ago, but since 2008 I've been concentrating on developing my skills as a painter.
My greatest passion these days is for painting people, I love the challenge of trying to capture the inner intelligence and human spirit of the subjects I paint, for me thats what makes a great figurative painting (or any kind of painting come to that) - the soul of the artwork.
I'm very much inspired my the old masters and try to capture something of their technique in my work but interpreted in a more modern way, with simple compositions and hopefully a more up to date approach to light and colour.
