New Year News from Town House Films

Next year gets off to an exciting start with a number of new releases already in the pipeline. In January we will be releasing Brian Ryder's New DVD Winter Landscapes in Oil.

Early next year will also see our second film with the amazing Jean Haines SWA. Her last DVD for us,  Amazing Ways With Watercolour,  has been a best seller and her army of fans around the world have clamoured for  a second release which will be out in early spring.

We are thrilled  to be working with a new artist Chris Forsey RI who will be showing how to produce incredible watercolours which go beyond the boundaries of traditional  watercolour painting. Chris is a very exciting artist and a member of the Royal Institute  Of Painters In Watercolour. Look out for this title in April.

Spring will also see the release of our third DVD with ROI President Peter Wileman. In response to many request from our customers around the world,  it will concentrate on Peter's abstract  oil landscapes which are a luscious feast of colour and tone.

Plus lots more exciting projects in the pipeline. In the meantime Elaine and I would like to wish all of our customers around the world a very happy and peaceful Christmas and a very painterly New Year!

New Brian Ryder DVD Out In January

We have just finished filming with Brian Ryder  for our first release of 2012 - Winter Landscapes in Oils. Brian is a devoted plein air painter and is keen to encourage all painters to tackle winter landscapes with their sparkling light and special atmosphere.

Brian painted in some lovely locations just a few miles from his home in Wells Next The Sea in Norfolk. The weather only defeated him once  - a picture we see him finishing off in the studio. The cold weather meant that Brian completed each picture in no more than and hour and a half and its fascinating to see just what can be achieved in a short space of time with heightened observation.

Judge for yourselves.

Brian's new DVD will be released in early January 2012
