‘Drawing Upon Life’ features the artwork of Simon Birtall (that’s me). I am an artist and tutor based on the Wirral, UK. Painting principally in an Impressionist-influenced technique, I work in oils or acrylics, and draw in various media. I hold weekly painting classes in Hoylake, Wirral and make occasional demonstrations to ‘local’ art societies. Further examples of my artwork can be seen on my (very out-of-date) website, www.birtall.co.uk.
