I am a great believer in learning from other artists. When you copy an artwork (or shall we say translate it?) you absorb many lessons that you just don’t get from copying a photograph. This is the panel a student made at my studio based on Tamara De Lempicka’s Girl in a Green Dress. 

It has been a while since I taught stained glass regularly. I stopped in 2004 to have more time in the studio, but still ran the odd weekend workshop, the latest being at Strawberry Hill House.  Richard, who had some private classes with me, made this lovely panel. He had studied stained glass for some time at the adult college where I used to teach, and wanted to improve his painting techniques.

“The experience was instructive, interesting and rewarding – and I was really pleased with the result,” Richard from Camberley.
