If you've been here before, check out the bottom of this page for some new paintings done specially for that *** book, "Acrylic Secrets 300 bla blas" added 18th Sept. They are photographed on a white wall so you can easily spot them.

 For a truly astounding range of tip-top professional art materials, go to STUDIO ARTS in Lancaster - the best shop in the North. www.studioarts.co.uk
and for ordering online, StudioArtShop.co.uk
 Meanwhile, that book I misguidedly wrote for Quarto/ Reader's Digest USA/UK came out on Oct. 1st, many of its pictures sabotaged by them at the last, leaving me quite unhappy. However superb contributions from Nick Andrew, Karen Mathison Schmidt , Fiona Clucas , and Marcia Burtt make it so much better. Spend not thy hard-earned cash but order it for free through your public library - "Acrylic Secrets - 300 Tips & Techniques" by moi, NOW ALSO IN PAPERPACK (Dec 2011)or see it here on amazon

Acrylic on wood, narrow black frame, 58 x 42 cms.

According to a recent BBC2 telly programme, a photo of Ullswater `
(gloomy, fuzzy, wiv a jetty)
is the current top-selling (over a million) factory-produced print in the UK.
A MILLION British households have this very view on their wall.
I didn't know that. But, strangely enough,
this painting is from the same exact spot.
This painting is infinitely more interesting (even "life-enhancing")

and there is only ONE of it. Don't be just like a million other people .... be bold!
Be .... original!

£ 350 and save yourself a trip to Ikea!
