Fashion illustration workshop, hosted by Louise O’Keeffe (Review)

There are few times in your life when you walk into a situation a little wary, apprehensive and quite frankly scared witless, and then having experienced the moment, walk away proud, confident and clutching a bunch of self made paintings.

Last evening I attended another of the Triumph workshops, and now I am very happy to say that I can paint! OK so I’m no Turner, but heck, Rome wasn’t built in a day.My Kate Bush Moment

Besides, if I can achieve from nought to this in under a couple of hours, give me a week and I could rival the Sistine Chapel!

The Eye Has It

The tutor for this session is the remarkably talented Louise O’Keeffe, a freelance illustrator and print designer based in London, whose website can be found here.  She is also as it turns out, a brilliant tutor.  Before this class I said I couldn’t draw for toffee. I can’t say that now 🙂

Louise gave the class loads of tips on how to paint with inks and craft pens, showed us great techniques, really encouraging the artistic side of our personalities.  I had a fabulous time, and can’t wait for her next class.

Check out other fabulous craft workshops at the Triumph Facebook page and book your place now! They are all free and you get to take your work home for no charge.  There aren’t many things in London you can do for free, take advantage and learn a new craft, if will change your life.

Louise is also appearing at Harvey Nics this Mothering Sunday, for more details, please click here.
