Tuition and Guidance for the Artist in Everyone

      “Welcome to our studio in the Highlands of Scotland, which is where Eileen and I, film, produce and release all of our video-on-demand (VOD) art tutorial box-sets.

      Painting is my life and my passion. It has been my pleasure, over five decades, to share that with a worldwide audience, via my extensive catalogue of online art tutorial videos - which are founded on traditional techniques.

      Whether you are starting out, or want to further develop your knowledge of painting techniques, our tutorials are planned and developed with you in mind.

      Technique was a ‘dirty’ word when I was studying for my degree, because it was deemed to stifle creativity – I do not subscribe to that belief - which is why it is our philosophy to reveal all and hold nothing back, both in my books and in my online video tutorials.

      Although my fourteen how-to books provided a marvellous vehicle in which to reveal the techniques that I believe in, imagine our thrill when the internet provided us with the opportunity to share those techniques in a comprehensive way - so that you can watch the entire painting process of an artwork, from start-to-finish.

      You can work-along with me, without fear of missing any hint, tip, technique, brush-stroke or colour mix.

      You can watch along at a pace to suit you and, unlike attending classes, can return to them time and time again - they are in effect, your painting companions for as long as you want them to be.

       Filmed in real-time, you can see every stroke on the surface, watch every colour mix on my palette, all accompanied by my detailed running commentary throughout and are packed full of tips and hints – nothing is withheld, nothing is edited out.

      We look forward to your company and send best wishes for your creativity.”

from Eileen and myself,
