it's an experience.
A ritual. It's life changing

Swipe And Slash – The Sword Liner

Studying at the Florence Academy of Art, there are many painting techniques to be mastered through intense practice and through following the methodology of the school. But there are also many things to be learned concerning one’s materials. For example, a great variety of edge qualities can be achieved in a painting simply by varying the kinds of brushes used—i.e. sable versus hog-hair.

My first visit to Cornwall was in 1966 whilst courting my now wife Eileen. I remember the excitement of such an adventure, the impact to my artistic eye of this stunning county never has left me. The clean beaches, the aqua coloured sea with bright light bouncing and glittering on the waves, the unique luminescence of the light, the warmth of each day.
It became a desire of ours to live and paint this wonderful part of the country, but life at that time in the commercial art world dictated I stay north. Many, many trips and many hundreds of paintings of the area later we finally made the move.

The Best Of Both Worlds – Flat vs Filbert

A new addition to our Ivory range designed by David Shevlino from the USA.

In Shevlino’s current work, the canvas has increasingly become a place to experiment with different techniques of paint application. He is particularly interested in exploring the line between the traditional representation of the figure and the abstraction of it, and his paintings reflect his simultaneous use of both approaches. His paintings are characterized by broad brush strokes, a sensuous application of paint and an obvious feel for tonal harmonies.
