One of these people has been this gentleman, Chris Daynes. He was one of my art teachers at secondary school and I will say without fear of embarrassing him, that he was a top chap and was probably the single most influential teacher I studied under. It wasn't his teaching that was of particular note, for I can remember very little of it seeping in directly, but his general approach. He let us get on with it encouraging us with a gentle benevolence. I can remember him getting annoyed on one or two occasions but if you were subject to his ire, you'd genuinely earned it. He also used to take us fishing which went down exceedingly well. What I didn't realise at the time was that he was actually a very very fine painter. Please visit his archive (but ignore the spelling).
