About Kieran Walsh and the session

“In my own practice painting and drawing work in tandem, with each one informing the other. I also teach them both together in all of my other teaching roles. Having seen the benefits I have decided to offer painting as an addition to my regular life drawing programme with Ocean Studios.

From my experience the introduction of paint can open up an entirely new language and unforeseen possibilities. For this class I want to keep it simple painting simpl, just like drawing, painting is something that we can all do. My hope is to maintain the same atmosphere of exploration and unselfconsciousness that exists in our weekly life drawing class, only this time we will be using paint. The class is open to everyone and we welcome people of all levels of experience. We will be working from both nude and clothed models. And as always I will be there offering my help to whoever wants/needs it.”
