Vibrant Oils DVD

For my new DVD I was filmed painting five plein air works on the beautiful Roseland peninsula in Cornwall in and around Portscatho, St Mawes and St Just in Roseland. The video has been produced by the wonderful APV films and will be released at the beginning of June. The official launch will be at Patchings festival (June 9th to 12th) but I am now able to accept mail orders which will be shipped out from June 5th. 

As a little thank you for your support the first 100 DVDs sent out from my studio will receive a complementary postcard pack, and you can order your copy now by clicking here.

Coming up in 2016 and 2017

As well as painting en plein air and in the studio I have plenty of exciting projects on the go. I am writing my book called 'Vibrant Oils' in association with Search Press, an instructional and inspirational book on oil painting which will be published in 2016 and I'm also finishing filming my DVD with APV films.

I shall keep you fully informed about both projects via my newsletter so please do sign up below to receive updates.


I will be leading a painting holiday in the Algarve in October 2016 and October 2017 with Alpha painting holidays.
