Carolyn King

Artist

I have a passion for drawing and painting. I studied art at Goldsmith’s College, London where I also trained to be a teacher. Now residing in Cheltenham I combine both elements in my life by teaching art to all ages and paint whenever, wherever and whatever I can.

I love to paint outdoors and watercolour is an ideal medium to capture a moment or scene. I have, over the years, developed a unique style which employs very free drawing combined with loose washes of colour.

Ideally I like to complete a painting in the presence of the subject as this adds a certain degree of magic and spontaneity to the finished picture. In my studio at home I can complete paintings from outdoor studies and digital images.

I enjoy painting commissions too, especially of houses or memorable views. These cost £80 - £100 for a mounted original painting. I can do a special price for more than one.

Swan Hellenic have booked me on board "Minerva" for several cruises to different parts of the world (please refer to cruise brochure). I always base my art workshops on views, scenes and subjects from our voyage.

I have also recently written two articles for Leisure Painter magazine on the techniques I use. If you are interested in a demonstration and workshop for your art group please contact me through my web site. Private tuition is available at my studio in Cheltenham for adults and children. Please click on the TUITION link for more details.

PERSONAL TUTION

PAINTING TUITION with CAROLYN KING

This is an opportunity for children or adults to have specialist tuition and build up confidence in sketching, watercolour painting and acrylics in a friendly and relaxed setting in my studio in Cheltenham.

I can also help children to prepare a scholarship portfolio by introducing lots of different media and techniques.

Charges are £25 per hour to include all materials. My most popular time is two hours for £50.

I also run one day workshops for art groups in the Gloucestershire area and can come to a venue of your choice. I can run a painting or felt making workshop with an audio visual presentation.

Please contact me for more information.
