8 x 25 minute chapters + Picture Galleries over 2 DVD's
Eight self contained lessons which follow on
naturally from the highly popular 'A BRUSH WITH ART' using several different
In each programme, Alwyn finds a subject to paint on location and then,
back in his studio, demonstrates some more advanced techniques while completing
a picture of the scene visited at the beginning of the programme.
1: PAINTING THE SEASONS
Using the same sketch done on location, Alwyn demonstrates how to paint
the four seasons from one sketch.
2: SMALL SKETCHES
Small objects can be just as enjoyable to sketch as larger subjects, and
can bring back memories of a place just as well as a complete picture.
3: USING PHOTOGRAPHS
Sometimes it's not practical to paint a scene on
location, but a photograph can provide you with inspiration.
Here, Alwyn paints a cruise ship and crowded dock, using a photograph
taken on holiday.
4: PAINTING SKIES
Skies offer endless possibilities for painters to try different techniques
and colours - dark, stormy skies, bright, sunny skies, cloudy skies and
skies at dawn - here he demonstrates a variety of skies.
5: PAINTING FROM IMAGINATION
Sitting in his studio on a bright summer's day, Alwyn demonstrates how
to paint a snowy winter scene.
Using the same sketch of a beach, Alwyn paints different versions of the
scene to demonstrate how using different colours and techniques it is
possible to create totally different atmospheres..
Gardens and flowers are favourite subjects for painters
and Alwyn creates a picture using gouache, an opaque water-based paint
that he has not used in his programmes before.
In this chapter, Alwyn introduces another new medium,
acrylic paint, and creates an autumnal landscape to demonstrate the medium's
