About Eleanor

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!

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! *****

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Painting

I have been an artist just about my entire life and a graphic designer/technical illustrator for over 26 years. However, drawing and painting are my passions.

I love teaching someone to paint and seeing their finished work of art. You'll learn about value, color, composition, perspective in a painting and much more. Learn to paint pet portraits, home portraits, seascapes and landscapes in oil or water-based oils. You'll discover a whole new world through the eyes of an artist and that artist is you!

Confident and knowledgeable tutor!

I learned so much in my first session with Eleanor! She did not overload me with more than I could grasp at one time and truly made me feel that I can do this! Her in-home studio is quiet, calming and peaceful. Supplies are in top-notch order and her patience and instructions are wonderful. She is a delightful person and it is obvious that she loves what she does!
