For those of you who have been visiting my blog for years and those of you who are here for the first time I wish you a very warm Welcome! I will endeavour to keep my blog regularly updated.

This is the launch of the new website and blog which I am pleased to present to you and hope that you will find it all informative and not too stuffy! Painting is the great joy of my life and there is nothing I like more than passing on my knowledge and to encourage everyone to draw and paint! I will use this blog as a vehicle to introduce you to many mediums especially my favourite Winsor and Newton ‘Artisan’ water-mixable oil paint, the star among mediums!
