Snowy morning in Upper Hopton, acrylic on board

I have started to teach art classes via Zoom over the last lockdown and these two paintings were the outcomes of my online demonstrations.

My focus was not only to inspire students and develop their painting skills but also to improve their mental well being during the lockdown, give them a new routine, aims and setting meaningful challenges. We also build a virtual social network by sharing everyone’s work; peer support and discussing further progress. It’s been a journey and I loved being part of it. They are now in our Exhibition at Blossom Street, York.
