Jonathon Marc Mendes Painted Love demonstration at La Di Da Interiors March 06, 2018 14:26

Last Summer I headed up to Lincolnshire to attend a painting retreat with Jonathon Marc Mendes from Painted Love. I spent a week working with Jonathon and other talented painters and had a fabulous time experimenting with different techniques and exchanging tips and experiences of using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and waxes. See some of the photos here

I had already seen lots of videos and examples of his work on Jonathon's facebook page, his snippet tutorials are fabulous, however in the flesh he's even better. He's a highly talented, self taught furniture painter as well as being immensely personable and a fabulous tutor. This was also recognised by Annie Sloan who in 2017 made him her Painter in Residence

Jonathon's work schedule has drastically changed since this and he is now in demand all over the world to teach workshops and seminars recently visiting Sweden, Greece, South Africa and later this year Australia. I know that lots of my paint customers are big fans too, so I am delighted to say that we have managed to persuade him to come along to La Di Da Interiors in Andover and hold an exclusive event for us this July. 

Saturday 7th July we have three hours of demo's planned, this is the only event he currently has planned for the South of England, we are honoured to host him. Covering a variety of techniques such as faded grandeur, ombre and colour blending there is also a Q&A section so you can get your questions answered. Tea and cake is also included in the ticket price along with a goody bag including vouchers and notes.
