I have had some time to think over the course you ran, and I'm still of the opinion that it was pretty much excellent - enthusiastic, individually tailored, aspirational. I'd like to thank you for the considerable effort you clearly put into it, and for the inspiration that I got out of it.- DR - Sunderland

I thoroughly enjoyed your workshop and I was pleased with my first attempt at a pastel landscape with a lot of help and guidance from you! It was a revelation to me to learn this new freer technique and I am keen to do further workshops and residential art breaks with you. Thanks so much Robert- RC – Pickering

Wanted to thank you for a fabulous course at Higham Hall over last weekend. I have learnt so much from you, though I think I am still processing most of it. Woke up this morning to a whole new world of colour spectrum, dark darks, lightest lights and chromatics- CG – Northumberland

You won't even be home yet, but this is to say again, thank you so much on behalf of us all for such a brilliant workshop. You did exactly what it said on the tin, a fun, inspirational day, well taught. Great!! Thanks for your words of wisdom at the end. I've just looked at the photos and am so impressed by all our work.- VS – North Yorkshire

Your presentation was inspirational, informative as well as humorous. As a result, I believe that some Club members and some of the visitors (of whom there were quite a few) will again take up their pastels based on your demo. Thanks Robert!- MR – Leeds, West Yorkshire

Thank you for your interesting and informative demonstration this morning. I have never really tried pastels so I found your talk and style of working most interesting. I am sure that I will give them a try, having seen how you produced such a bright, lively picture in such a short space of time – teaching us all the way through! - DR - Leeds, West Yorkshire

Thanks again for a wonderful course. Truly inspiring. Looking forward to next time!- PD – Castleford, West Yorkshire

A very successful art break Robert and great interaction between everyone. I learnt so much and had a really fabulous time! Thanks- HP – Humberside

The feedback so far to your workshop with us has been great. A really successful, informative day and of you being very energetic, full of enthusiasm and ideas for making imagery using pastels. Come back soon! - DC – North Yorkshire

Thank you so much for the seascape workshop. As I am a beginner in landscape, I was a little apprehensive about attending, but I need not have worried. You are always so patient and kind. I cannot believe how much I have learnt from you already.- BW – North Yorkshire

Thanks so much for todays workshop. It was so wonderful, I enjoyed every minute. Hope to enjoy the experience of another of your courses again VERY SOON!- JF – North Yorkshire

I was inspired by your art, teaching, energy and enthusiasm. I admired the way your work was an expression of your love for the landscape and environment, underpinned by true understanding, knowledge, skill and of course…bags of talent!- CG – Northumberland

I've been on many of Robert's art classes over the years and every time he inspires me. He is always encouraging and has shown me how to work through the difficulties in a painting rather than giving up and starting again! A fab tutor! - Helen Patterson (Harrogate)
