PAINTING WITH WATERCOLOUR - THE BOOK
The new book on watercolour painting is now available from your favourite book shop or direct from the publisher, Crowood Press - www.crowood.com Writing a book like this requires a lot of time and effort but the process encourages a considerable amount of research about the medium and how I work with it. Like the earlier 'Painting with Oils', the book not only covers the medium itself but the importance of composition and construction, perspective, materials, sketching and understanding colour theory.
JUST WATERCOLOUR' VIDEO IS NOW ON VIMEO
Many digital devices these days don't have a DVD player and therefore Vimeo are offering a service where you can buy a film and it is held in your online library for viewing whenever it suits you on whatever device you find convenient. APV Films are now offering my DVD 'Just Watercolour' through this service - Have a look at :- http://vimeo.com/ondemand/dh1 to find out more and see the trailer.
CURRENT STUDIO WORK
I've just returned from a painting trip to France and I'm busy sorting out all the sketches, small watercolours and odd drawings and starting work on the paintings. Most of the time it was just too hot to be working out in the open, or maybe I'm just getting old but a lot of the new material looks very promising and I'll show some of the paintings here in due course.
