Recent News
I've already been to France once this year and I'm there again in a couple of weeks from now. I had a lovely 5 days and we were very lucky with the weather, although we did dodge a couple of rainy bits. Paris is still my favourite city.

   

Ive just finished the Patchings show which was a great success with Winsor and Newton launching 3 new products, limited edition watercolours, watercolour marker pens and watercolour sticks. All of these went down a storm and all in all it was a very successful show.

Heres a tweet sent to me

OUTDOORS ON LOCATION WORKSHOPS
Some of our most popular workshops are based outdoors in and around our local area here in Northumberland.

The workshops are based in the studio which we use just in case the weather turns against us. With the weather on our side, we will travel out each day to paint locations such as Druridge Bay, Warkworth Castle, The River Coquet and various barns and little hideaways in the immediate area.

 Video Downloads
Video Downloads only £5 each

These video downloads are our most popular and talked about item.

They really are televisual quality, I suppose that's because they were filmed by the TV crew and directed by the TV director who did so many of the Tyne Tees TV programmes with me. Packed full of information the getting started DVD will really give you a quick boost and help you handle lots of tips and techniques.

The seascapes, well what more can I say, Northumbria's beautiful coastline namely Druridge Bay painted out on location plus back to the studio for more tips and techniques. Beautiful film quality good instruction all for £10 each (DVD version)

Remember when you buy the download version you can upgrade to the DVD version.
