I am delighted to say that our latest DVD is now in stock - earlier than anticipated.

It features the brilliant young award winning artist Tim Benson AROI and his exciting big brush technique than has won him awards and plaudits wherever his work is exhibited. Tim uses just four  colours plus white and a three inch side bristle brush to produce portraits that are really full of character.

The DVD Dynamic  Oil Portraits features two full portrait demonstrations of husband and wife Ron and Sheila Sewell. Here are some pictures from the shoot.
