“I really enjoyed having a lesson in an artist’s studio. Through your input I gained confidence with colour mixing, being reminded how to achieve colour variations from the three primaries to create secondary and tertiary colours. I personally needed to go back to basics and you were willing to do that.”
You gave me permission to experiment, I never do that on my own!
‘Having experienced several of Robyn’s workshops I find they help me to loosen up and not be so tight in my artistic expression. I love the way she walks me through the basics and builds upon those things through the various exercises we complete. She always puts a lot of thought and preparation into her personalized sessions, sending you away with ideas to explore further. I feel enriched artistically and personally from the creative sessions.’
In the studio and with the workshops you made a physical space as well as a head space…if I thought I would create the same work at home I would be kidding myself and would most likely get distracted by things that need to be done – thank you for creating a space!
