you want to accelerate your development as a painter, get yourself a painting
business, the professions and the public sector the value of having a personal
coach is now seen as vital for career development. The role of the coach has
always been recognised in sport and fitness training. But in the art field there
is no such role recognised.
So, what is a coach?
coach will assess your individual requirements and work with you on a skill
development programme tailored to the needs of each individual.
am a watercolour painting coach who
specialises in landscape painting or Outdoor Realism -you can see examples of my
work in the Virtual Gallery.
in watercolour painting is ideally conducted on a one-to-one basis but a small
group of three maximum may want to share the experience and the costs. The coach
will help you to develop your painting skills through a series of planned
activities and will identify where you could develop new painting skills and
will work with you to achieve these
painting courses and painting holidays can be very helpful and instructive and
even good fun, the tutor has to address the needs of the group as a whole. From
my experience of running painting courses and holidays there will be a range of
painting abilities in any group, from novice to experienced painters, which the
painting programme has to address. By definition, some aspects of the programme
will not be relevant or useful to you. Individual tuition does take place but is
limited because of the demands on the tutorís time of other course members. It
is also usually the tutor who decides the programme content, based on their
approach to painting, which may or may not suit your painting style.
advantages of coaching over painting courses are:
teaching is tailored specifically to areas of skill development which you
need, not some set of generic skills.
your watercolour skill development will be significantly accelerated. You will probably learn more in a single
coaching session than you would in a week-long painting course.
none of your time is wasted.
my 5Cís painting system is not
a style of painting but an analytical
tool that makes learning easy and fun by providing a structure for
incremental development of your
painting skills and style. See Robert
Newcombe's 5C's and the 5C's in Action
Although Iím primarily a watercolour artist the 5Cís is a generic
system which enables me to offer advice to painters in any medium on how to
dramatically improve your paintings if you have technical competence in your
you just want the structured analysis of your work in any medium which the
5Cís offers the
first session may be enough to set you on a course to better paintings.
can take my coaching programme in three ways:
One-Day Coaching Programme
Online Coaching Programme
three programmes are based on my unique 5Cís painting system.
does a coaching programme cost?
the coaching programme I offer costs less than a typical one-week painting
holiday abroad but is tailored to your painting level and skill development
needs to ensure accelerated learning. Up to three people can share the costs.
Each will experience accelerated learning in watercolour painting.
