‘Society of Painters in Water-Mixable Oils’
Over the years I have introduced hundreds of students to water-mixable oils and the joy that working with them gives and thought that 2020 would be the perfect year to launch an information, teaching and learning platform for all those professional and amateur artists who have discovered the amazing medium that is water-mixable oil paint or are thinking about trying them! So I and some of my fellow professionals are proud to have founded and present to you the ‘Society of Painters in Water-Mixable Oils’ and cordially invite you to join our ranks.

Oficially opening on Saturday November 9th 2019, The Walled Garden Cafe owned by my wife Cynthia and myself and managed by our chef daughter Laura. Apart from the great breakfasts, lunches, afternoon teas and naughty cakes you would expect from a good cafe as the name suggests, there’s a nice big garden area which in the late spring and summer will host various art exhibitions and painting workshops. In the meantime it will play host to a number of art workshops, the first of which will take place on the evening of the 19th of November from 18.30 to 20.30 the theme of which is ‘Paint a Christmas Card in Gouache’, all materials supplied and will include tea or coffee and a slice of cake all for £20 per person. With my guidance you will create your own Christmas Card which you could have copied and produced as cards in time to send to special friends and family. Places are limited so if you are interested you will need to e-mail me to book a spot, if you happen to be unlucky and the places have already been filled don’t despair if there is a demand we will simply run some more over the following week or so.
It was a great surprise to find that I had been awarded first place for my painting of ‘Quarr Abbey Ruins’ in the ‘Light, Space and Time’s’ Landscape Painting of the year competition for 2019, especially as I had previously won it in 2016. There were 572 entries from 22 different Countries.
I have just been notified that I have been awarded 4th place in the annual ‘Light, Space and Time’s’ International Seascape painting competition for my painting of ‘The Needles from Headon Warren’; There were 561 entries from 22 Countries. I was also awarded a Certificate of Special Merit for my Painting of ‘Stag Rock, Freshwater Bay’ which I was commissioned to paint for an article in this years October issue of ‘Leisure Painter’ magazine. Both are available as Limited edition prints in my web-shop.👨🎨
I am a featured, Winsor and Newton artist and a Professional Associate with the SAA, I also write articles for ‘Leisure Painter’. I lead sketching and painting holidays for HF Holidays in their UK houses and in Europe and also run painting holidays at the wonderful Manoir de Gurson in the heart of the Dordogne region of France near St. Emilion. When I am not leading holidays or writing I run workshops and tutor art groups on the Isle of Wight. I have written a book titled ‘Landscape Painting In ‘Artisan’ Water-Mixable Oils’ which is available from my web-shop – www.murrayince.com much more of my work can be viewed in my on-line galleries.
