Bio

I CAN TEACH YOU TO DRAW AND PAINT!

I've been drawing and painting for over 50 years. I was an Illustrator/Graphic Designer and worked in the corporate world with Xerox, IBM, General Electric and Art Director for a Children's Museum. However, painting is my passion.

People often tell me they feel they are in my paintings or standing right there. That is one of the best compliments an artist can receive. I have this fascination with the play of light on subjects and scenes that carry you off...

I CAN TEACH YOU TO DRAW AND PAINT!

I've been drawing and painting for over 50 years. I was an Illustrator/Graphic Designer and worked in the corporate world with Xerox, IBM, General Electric and Art Director for a Children's Museum. However, painting is my passion.

People often tell me they feel they are in my paintings or standing right there. That is one of the best compliments an artist can receive. I have this fascination with the play of light on subjects and scenes that carry you off into the distance as far as the eye can see. I love painting skies and water and beautiful places. Included in my subjects you'll find portraits of people, animals, homes, seascapes and landscapes.

The majority of my students have never painted before. Learn to paint in oil, water-based oil or acrylic. Paint your favorite seascape, landscape, still life, pet, etc. on canvas. I'll give you Individual instruction on setting up a composition, arranging your palette, color mixing, value, how to create depth in a painting and more. If you don't have paints and brushes, I'll provide you with some for the first lesson. If you'd like to continue on, I'll give you a list of art supplies to purchase.

I get great satisfaction seeing someone who has never experienced painting go home with their finished piece. The proud look on their face is priceless. Come find the artist in you and let me share my wonderful world of painting!

Drawing

I have been an artist just about my entire life and a graphic designer/technical illustrator for over 30 years. My art resides in private homes and corporate locations in the US and abroad. I love teaching someone to draw and seeing how proud they are with their finished work of art. You'll learn about value, composition, perspective in a drawing and much more. Learn to draw pet portraits, home portraits, seascapes and landscapes in pencil. You'll discover a whole new world through the eyes of an artist and that artist is you!

Such a pleasure!!!

My daughter had her first private lesson with Eleanor this afternoon and we could not be more pleased! Eleanor was very easy to arrange the lesson with and was more than accommodating when I needed to change the lesson date. It was a real pleasure meeting Eleanor and getting to see her beautiful work in person!

Knowledge & Encouraging

Eleanor obviously knows her stuff and was wonderful guiding my teenage daughter during her first ever lesson in painting (started with oils). My daughter is so looking forward to get next lesson!

Tutor responded:

Thank you for your fine review. I enjoyed meeting you both and working with Alexandra. I know your daughter was a bit apprehensive getting started. However, once she began working with oils, she learned quickly. Without my telling her, she knew how to mix colors and the different ways to hold the brush as we progressed through the painting. Alexandra should be very proud that she attempted a new skill and proved she could do it! Five stars to you! *****
