A passion that has been with me from an early age; a passion that became my life's work as a Professional Fine Artist spanning well over forty years and will continue to be so, for as long as I am able to wield a brush and pencil.
As well as producing works of Fine Art in oils, watercolours, acrylics, drawing, pastels, etchings and other media, it gives me enormous pleasure to encourage others to take up painting, whether as a profession or as a pleasurable pursuit.
And now, in 2017, Phase 2 of my 'Elphen Chronicles' comes to public life, exactly twenty years after Phase 1 came into being. The culmination of five years of intense work on a significant collection of large oil paintings and accompanying manuscript. More of that to come in the ensuing months - so do watch this space. Meanwhile, Eileen and I send you All Elphen Happiness for 2017, in our 'wee' little animated film that you can view on Vimeo.
Whether you are an art lover who collects works of art or simply want to browse around, please feel free to use my online studio as an introduction to my work. Private Collectors have direct access to collections through the five featured galleries and can browse through Originals and Limited Edition Prints that are available for sale as well as viewing a selection of works sold over the years,
If you are an artist or would-be artist seeking practical help and a way to start on this most pleasurable of pursuits, please use my online painting and drawing tutorials on Vimeo as the gateway to a world in which I share my passion through an ever-growing index of detailed tutorial box-sets covering Oils, Watercolours, Acrylics, Pastels, Portraits & Figures, Colour Mixing and various other media.
We go to some lengths to ensure my tutorials are packed full of information to help painters of all abilities make progress. These include Workshops, Masterclasses, Learn to Enjoy Painting series, occasional Out and About with Paul and more - all revealed in our 'Welcome' video featured on the home page of our artworkshopwithpaul account on Vimeo - http://www.vimeo.com/artworkshopwithpaul
Thankyou for popping into my studio, we do hope you enjoy your visit,
