Appraising your own work can be a very difficult thing to do objectively and successfully. Looking at something you have worked hard to create and trying to decide what to do next or how to improve it, can often lead to feelings of self doubt and confusion, resulting in work being abandoned or left looking ‘not quite right’.
During this insightful talk, renowned British artist Peter Keegan will explain and teach you how to hone your critical eye. He will impart  the secrets of what works and doesn’t work and more importantly, why, so that you will know how to move forward and how to fix problems when they occur.
By looking at examples of his own work as well as the work of other artists, Peter will highlight common themes for success within a painting and also point out where paintings can most frequently fall down or fail.
By the end of the talk, you will have amassed a “tool kit” of tips and techniques to help you see your work more clearly and critically, and well as strategies for improving your paintings, all of which will help you to create more successful, harmonious and confident paintings as a result.
