I didn't want to become an expert sketcher because my area of art is tactile-texture with acrylics, I wanted to gain the mental tools and physical skills which have eluded me for 63 years - Nigel achieved that. Nigel has a perfect, calm, warm and supportive personality with me as his focus, I can't thank Nigel enough for what he has taught me so far in his very professional and inexpensive way. I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone who want to either improve any level of artistic skills from the very bottom, like me, to a very high standard. Most importantly though, Nigel fitted in my tuition very quickly (first contact the next day) and completely around my lifestyle too.
Due to having had a recent operation and recently being asked to help some other people in a few weeks time, I won't have the need to use Nigel's tuition for several months to come but I know I can call upon him again as and when I need him, which I certainly will. Here is a very BIG thank you, Nigel, I hope you get to help a lot more people because I know they will benefit greatly like I have. Dennis. Dennis W Read.
