I regularly provide demonstrations to local art groups. I'd be happy to discus this together with tuition of individuals or groups
Not my thing - but a nice comment in the Guardian.... Check out Sydney-trained, Saltaire inspired David Starley's oils.
David is a professional artist who first studied art at Sydney University whilst working in a steel foundry. After a subsequent career in archaeology, his working life is now centred on painting. He is based in Saltaire, West Yorkshire, an industrial village constructed by Titus Salt and now a UNESCO designated World Heritage Site.
David's characteristic work features oil paint thickly applied with a knife to produce a three-dimensional, almost sculpted, image. This adds great depth and produces a surface that responds subtly to the changing light in the display environment. The subjects of David’s paintings are mainly landscapes, often featuring native flora, historic buildings or archaeological features. Recent work includes woodland scenes tree portraits, in which individual trees, or parts of trees are the focus of the painting.
