I received two great DVD’s in the post yesterday. Watercolouring by Charles Reid and Alvaro Castagnet. I have watched the Charles Reid film and found it really inspiring, so hopefully you will see a big improvement in my watercolouring very soon! It would be nice to go on a watercolour course with these guys but I could not afford it. I recommend these tutorials to anyone who is interested in improving their skills. Not recommended for beginners. Go here if you would like to see more tutorial videos from APV.
I received my “Rural France In Watercolour” DVD by Joseph Zbukiv yesterday. I look forward to watching it. I’m off to Paimpol, Brittany, Northern France in June and I plan to paint as must as possible while there. Click here if you’d like to see the trailer that inspired me to buy the video.

I tried this technique last night at my life drawing class, after two hours I created a colourful but scary result. Charles has been doing it a while, I guess I can’t expect to emulate his style on the first attempt!
This Geoff Kersey tutorial is very good, I’ve only looked at 2 parts so far, I’m hooked!
Shop on the street by Direk Kingnok. His style is similar to Alvaro Castagnet I think. I had no time myself to do any water colouring this week, I am busy at work so it might be a while before I have some free time on my hands.
This clip shows several minutes segments from the dvd by painter Robert Liberace. More info at www.robertliberace.com.
