I found the Drawing and Painting course quite challenging, especially the landscape segments. I feel that the structure and Paul’s advice has made significant improvements in my ability. I have also gained a lot more confidence.

I have always sketched a lot, but never took my sketches to finished drawings. The course has encouraged me to do that much more often. I enjoyed the opportunity to do some abstract painting and to use various mediums that I had not used before. I particularly liked the figure drawing and portrait work; it is not something I had done before.

When I began the course at sixteen I was considering art as a possible career. The course, along with Paul, has convinced me that this is the direction I wish to go in so I am now looking to do a Bachelor’s in Illustration with the Open College of Arts.
