Standing in front of a canvas can feel daunting. Ri shows how to jump in and experiment with brushwork, colours, textures and shapes – allowing a painting to appear before your eyes. Then it’s just a matter of taking it in the direction you like, whether abstract or impressionistic.

Great for beginners and also experienced. You will come away with something you’ll be proud to hang on your wall.
