Private One-To-One Watercolour Landscape Painting Tution in Bristol with Jem Bowden

I really enjoy teaching on a one-to-one basis, which I do at my home studio in South Bristol. I feel it is the quickest and best way for most students to learn. The ability to focus up close on any aspect of painting is so beneficial. In a relaxed atmosphere I can demonstrate techniques – in and out of the context of a painting – at your own pace, and even guide your hand almost literally if desired. We can go off on tangents as we need to, discuss any issue or problem and resolve it to move onwards and upwards.

You may have an idea of where you’d like to begin, for example with techniques for a specific subject, or maybe it is something more fundamental such as planning, composition, ‘interpretation’, creating impact or expanding your mark-making that you want to focus on.

Alternatively, I can structure tuition around priorities that I can identify from viewing your work. It’s always good to start with a chat about your paintings, where they are currently and what you’re aiming for. I am happy working with anyone, from beginner upwards.

The Black Sheep Brush

Whenever you attend tuition face-to-face with me, you will have the opportunity to try and buy my very own creation, the Black Sheep brush.  My ‘right hand man’ – find out more about it here.
