|Project 1 – Sailing Boat – Watercolour
To kick off the tuition for the members page our first one is a very simple scene. Not to taxing even for someone who is a very beginner.
For this Venetian scene its got to be said I’m probably going to push you the hardest I ever will. its another watercolour project which is really quite detailed. With a beautiful sense of light and dark with bold rich colours. The usual brushes with just the eight colours that I use plus the Charles Evans Sand
Camels in the Dessert, this is fairly vibrant and very striking Acrylic on canvas.
Project 4 – Lindisfarne Castle – Watercolours
A classic Northumberland image of Lindisfarne Castle on Holy Island. This one is not as complicated as you might first think.
Project 5 – Rialto Bridge, Venice – Watercolours
The Rialto Bridge, Venice, possibly one of the most painted bridges in Europe.
Project 6 – Scottish Red Deer – Aryclis
This is lovely watercolour painting of Wallington Hall in Northumberland, but its not as complex as you first might think.
Again another Venetian scene this time a little bit more complicated but just as rewarding. This one is 12 beautiful step by step images for you to follow, I hope you enjoy it as this one is a real beauty.
Project 9 – Venice St Mark’s Square – Watercolour
A rather complex painting for the members this time. But follow closely and it is very achievable and also very rewarding.
Another very complex Venice painting with slightly different colour mixes to the previous Venice projects. Challenging but worth the effort in the long run. Enjoy.
Here is a lovely scene of the River Coquet which is literally only about 3 fields away from my house here in Northumberland. Its a fairly big canvas using acrylics.
Project 12 – Stately Home – Watercolour
A great scene from near Fort Augustus in The Highlands of Scotland.
Project 15 – Dunstanburgh Castle – Watercolour
A classic Northumberland Coastline castle.
Project 16 – Dunstanburgh Beach – Watercolour

Project 18 – French Village – Watercolour
Project 19 – Cramlington Village – Watercolour
Project 20 – Winter Walk – Acrylic
Project 21 – Borrowdale – WatercolourFor this project we are going to use all the new limited edition colours from Daler Rowney but as usual in the first image starting off with a simple outline drawing.
This is a scene that I did in Spain last year. In 39°c temperatures out on location. The paint was dry before I had even mixed it.
Project 23 – Chillingham Caslte – Watercolour
Project 24 – Welsh Country Lane – Watercolour
The infamous South Sheilds Fish Quay
One of our Italian holiday stop offs, Montecatini Alto, a fabulous village in the sky.
A fabulous scene from my local beach, Druridge Bay. Done in watercolour on a beautiful May evening.
A lovely classic English Village scene is our next project, challenging but rewarding.
Project 29 – North East Coast
This is wonderful local castle, only 3 miles north of the office. It looks complicated but when broken down into stages its quite straight forward.
An iconic view in Amble, the wonderful cliff house which looks down onto the North Sea just south of the harbour.
One of my favourite view of The Cheviots.
