Bill gives excellent feedback and advice. He’s very clear about when and how you’ve gone wrong. The encouragement as well as the criticism. I enjoy drawing people and Bill always gently challenges me to improve.
Very free-range, not prescriptive. The Tutor came round regularly with input, suggestions, comments. We had the opportunity to draw outdoors, variety of good views using a range of materials/techniques.
