Sorry. No more posts.


I'm sorry to have to tell you that I will not be posting again, at least not for some time.


I need to allocate more time to painting and teaching and something has to give. My decision is that this blog is that 'something'.


I want to thank you all for your support and to ask you to glance at my website occasionally to see the new work that I intend producing.


Warm wishes,


Malcolm

INSTRUCTION • INSPIRATION MOTIVATION

Welcome,

I'm Malcolm, a painter, tutor, lecturer and workshop instructor living in South Norfolk.

My years of painting experience have taught me to loosen-up, let go of fear and paint spontaneously.

My philosophy is ‘less is more’.

  • Fewer brushes for livelier, quicker painting.

  • Fewer paints for easy, straightforward colour mixing.

  • Fewer techniques for optimal results.​

But that doesn’t mean I ignore the basic fundamentals and principles upon which I believe all good painting should be based: shape, value, colour, edges and centre of interest.

​These foundations underpin all my work. If you want to paint portraits, abstracts, still life or landscapes, the same foundations apply; they will give you a solid basis for anything you choose to paint, regardless of subject or medium.

It is my intention to talk about these fundamentals in a straight-forward, no-nonsense, jargon-free way in this blog and to encourage you incorporate them into your work.

Thank you for visiting!
