Today we interview Paul White, one of our pupils in the Studio.
How do you know about the Studio, Paul?
"I got to know about it via a friend."
When did you start lessons here?
"I started my classes in January 2010."
What is your favourite medium?
"That would have to be pastels."
Who is your favourite artist?
"Jean :-) "
What is the last exhibition you went to and what did you think of it?
"Jean's exhibition at the American Womens Club. Thought it was excellent."
Can you tell us something about your piece of art and what inspired you to make it?
"Jean painted a picture of Morgan Freeman which I liked very much and I thought I would like to try something similar with light and dark."
Why did you choose this medium?
"Because so far it's the only medium I've tried."
Anything else you want to add?
"This was the first time I've painted a portrait without the help of grid lines - Jean bullied me in to it! I also leant a lot about applying light and dark."
