Cherry hosts unique workshops where she demonstrates exactly how she makes a painting from scratch. She helps each student individually, encouraging everyone to make an amazing painting rather than just a copy of a face.

What to expect

Cherry shares and demonstrates her own unique method of making a large scale watercolour painting.

While this is not a portrait painting workshop the scaling up part of this workshop can help students to get a very good likeness when they do wish to make a portrait.
