People say it is too hard for just anyone to paint and only ‘real’ artist born with the skill can produce good work.
I started the ‘Will Kemp Art Studio’ to prove that this is just not true.
Prior to painting full time I’ve worked in Museums, taught in schools, set up and ran my own gallery for 5 years and have taught hundreds of people to paint and draw over the last 15 years.
“Thanks for this video Will. The detailed organisation, preparation and finishing are not usually available in “normal” art videos so it was very helpful to say the least. Yes, my painting turned out far better than I could have imagined -”

“I love the finished painting very much and probably will try to paint it again for the second, third time.”

Still Life – Missy 2012
I really think Missy has done incredibly well. The jug shape and form is spot on and the glow on the lemon is lovely. I like the way she has managed to keep colours in the shadow of the lemon yet still keep the tone correct, really nice painting.
“I just didn’t know where to start.” I feel like I’m getting the base that I have been looking for. I’ve been trying to start painting for years and keep getting frustrated and stop. I’ve also taken other painting classes and haven’t learned what I have really wanted to learn.

Still Life – Svetlana April 2012
I think the way Svetlana has painted the detail and sensitivity on the cup is lovely, I especially like the way she has painted the lemon slice, students often paint it too bright but she has handled is really well.
The spoon is also particularly elegant, a brilliant job of her first painting!
“I really enjoyed the course. It inspired me to take another one on drawing and it happened as early as lesson 4 when I saw that I can draw. We are really proud. All of us. My husband appreciated the darkness of background…
This is just to say once again how deep is my gratefulness . I am absolutely new early beginner. And I am so lucky to have you as my first teacher.”

As a teacher the most common problems students come to me with are :
