I have been teaching since 1994 both privately and for the Adult Education Service at the Isle of Wight College. Over a number of years I have run outdoor summer classes, workshops and tuition and I also enjoy demonstrating to groups. My tuition is always geared to the individual, whether within a group setting or on an individual basis and I really enjoys seeing people develop their painting skills and their enjoyment gained from this.

SOME COMMENTS

''Whilst I have drawn and painted in watercolours for many years, two days of tuition from Becky has helped me to far better understand the subtleties of pigments, colour mixing and gaining confidence to use lots more water. My work now 'flows' better and a whole new horizon has dawned on me. I strongly recommend Becky's patient guidance to others who might want to broaden their skills.''

Roger, Hampshire. September 2017



''I have just spent a wonderful day of painting with Becky Samuelson.
Having not painted for a while I had lost much needed confidence which was instantly restored with the expert help from Becky.
I learnt many new brush stokes and techniques during the day working with both acrylic and oils and came away very happy with my creations.
I would not hesitate to recommend Becky more highly''.
Claire Caminada May 2014


''Even on grey days, Becky put the colour into my painting. She is an enthusiastic and inspiring teacher and spending the day on one of her courses with a group of like minded painters boosted my confidence and improved my skills tremendously''.
David Ambrosini


'I thought Becky's watercolour workshops expertly combined exposition and demonstration with support tailored to every person's needs - all delivered with warmth and humour that reassured and encouraged. I came away feeling inspired, eager to start practising the skills I'd learned. Thank you, Becky! Liz Martin

"Becky shares her knowledge freely and her enthusiasm is infectious
making her watercolour course really enjoyable. It was a pleasure to be
a student again."
Brian Taylor
