This week Paul Kielty and I went for our second mentoring session with the amazing artist Tanya Raabe-Webber, at her home studio in Shropshire.

We took our lesson plans and Makaton sheets to ask for her expert advice –  ahead of our “Painting by Pixels” workshops at Derwen College and Designs in Mind in May 2018. Her expertise and input was extremely helpful.

She also inspired us as always, plus showed us the sample painting of her most recent commission. I love her work her portraits are full of energy and reflect the personality of the sitter so well. Her book “Portraits Untold” is brilliant, as was the project in which she partnered with Tate Modern, Wolverhampton Art Gallery and Tate Liverpool. You can go to her website for more details if you click here.




We are so looking forward to running the workshops. And hope the participants enjoy them!
