Springtime (Paintalong) in Watercolour

This film, the first I made, is 90 minutes and as will be seen in the film, halfway through it poured down, the noise on the brollies was such that we had to do the last half in voice over, however, having said that, it has been one of our best sellers and is still quite popular today. Perhaps because of the varied subject matters, distant trees, foreground trees, bridge, stream, buttercups and houses, who knows?

Pennine Waterfall in Watercolour

This film was done on location on a very hot summers' day, very enjoyable, with much emphasis on rocks and running water.

The amount of detail in this subject meant that it was not possible to reduce it below 2 hours and still have every brush stroke in the film, therefore the customer gets more for the same price, all be it a more difficult picture to copy.

Autumn tints in Watercolour

This film with its view over Hard Castle Crags in autumn was done on quite a crisp morning and again showing them how to proceed from a blank paper, drawing out the big array of trees into rows or banks prior to the application of the watercolour and then building up each area working towards the dry stone wall in the foreground and the Billbury bushes.

Mountains in Watercolour

This was made in the Duddon Valley with very changeable weather typical of the lake - land area. We had mist as is obvious, some rain around lunchtime and finally lovely sun in the afternoon. My main aim here was the wet into wet sky, which of course doesn't work until the landscape is put below, adding the stream, rocks and sheep to make the scene interesting and give a large amount of instructional matter for the viewers, actually more than 90 minutes as shown.

Pennine Winter

This film, the snow scene, some people said I must have been mad sitting out painting in a snow storm, It wasn't snowing at the beginning, however it did start

Never the less I enjoyed it all through, It's a good subject for getting over perspective in buildings, also showing the use of counter-play in colour and the use of the white paper as I never use any white pigment in my pictures or black for that matter. This again was filmed entirely on location in the Hebden Bridge area.

Coastal Watercolour

This film is a little more than 90 minutes long as shown on the sleeve.

It was filmed on location at Sunderland Point Twixt Lancaster and Morecombe, on a lovely day with a sky ideal for a beginner in watercolour. Then having some distant trees and water, coming into the middle distance with buildings, trees and sea walls, all giving good tuition in the painting of textures along with the foreground beach broken with the small boats, the whole making a pleasant straight forward painting for someone to follow.
