Jamie is a patient and creative teacher; he demonstrates different ways of learning and delves deeper into a concept when Jane is ready. While critiquing Jane’s work, Jamie focuses on being encouraging by concentrating the conversation on the good parts of the work, while also making suggestions.
Jamie supports Jane’s independence as a painter by encouraging her to discover what she is passionate about. Although many of Jamie’s lessons are structured around the process of working with oils and how he completes a landscape painting, he urges Jane to maintain individualism instead of directly replicating his process.
