Start Abstract Painting Today!

One day workshop

at Central Hall, Back Lane, Wymondham, Norfolk NR18 0QB

Saturday February 29, 2020 10 am - 4 pm

Just one place remaining.

Unfortunately, one of my regular students has had to withdraw due to unforseen circumstances so I have one place available. Full workshop details can be found on my website on the workshop page.

I will fill the place on a 'first come, first served' basis so please contact me via email as quickly as possible if you are interested in joining this exciting workshop.

I look forward to hearing from you.





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!
