I teach students at all levels of experience and encourage enthusiasm for the chosen medium. The class is divided equally between still life and portraiture with both providing a wide spectrum of observational skills. My aim is to ensure that students enjoy the challenge and adventure of using oils and pastels.
Barbara McManus is very well known and highly regarded for her impressionistic work in both pastel and oil. Figure and character studies feature prominently in her work. Barbara is in high demand as a Tutor, Judge and Demonstrator.
