  • The above mentioned is the fun part of the tuition, Alongside these tutorials I will be dealing with what I call the "Nuts and Bolts". This will cover the basic principles of art plus technical details like framing, marketing, photographing source material, soft pastel techniques the David Johnson way and much more. The first mentioned is going to be handled in a novel way with the emphasis always being on practicality. 
  • At a later stage will be introducing competitions and promotions.
  • Crits your on your work will be handled on a selective basis. For instance, if 10 of you didn't get the linear perspective right in your road, I would only answer to one in a bulk format. However will attempt to respond to as many as is possible.
