INSTRUCTION • INSPIRATION MOTIVATION
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!
