Ted enjoys encouraging others to paint and is very generous in sharing his knowledge and skills. As evidence of this, Ted travels around NSW running painting workshops.

Ted has run workshops in Forbes, Wallabadah, Parkes, Orange, Bathurst and Canowindra in NSW.

In these workshops Ted teaches the basics of painting using both oils and acrylics:

  • drawing – balance, perspective and interest
  • colour mixing and tone
  • actual painting approach eg blocking in of main objects and direction of light

Ted tries to break down the process to ensure that participants understand the steps and enjoy their painting experience. He also hopes that by understanding these steps participants can repeat this back in their own studios and continue to improve their painting skills.
