Oil Bar Article...

I have just been commissioned to write about the way I work with oil bars for an upcoming issue of Artists and Illustrators magazine. I won't give the game away at the moment but here is a glimpse of the painting I developed to accompany the article...

Arte Week...

I have just got back from a weeks teaching in Umbria. Had a lovely group who were all eager to get the paint flowing. Here we all are in the sun but as you can see from my landscape sketch a storm was brewing from Wednesday evening...
I would like to say a big thanks to all the group for being prepared to play and get their hands dirty and use a big brush! I hope that you are all inspired to keep adding lots of water!
