Light And Atmosphere
In Oil Landscapes
With Chris Daynes
Our latest DVD featuring the fabulous Chris Daynes is out now! Chris is passionate about plein air oil painting and in this, his second DVD for us, he travels to what he calls his "spiritual painting home" of North Norfolk. Norfolk is all about big skies and it's these skies that feature prominently in so much of Chris' work. In this DVD Chris, who is based in Kent returns to some of his favourite painting locations including Blakeney Harbour and Cley Next The Sea.
Just to prove that the outdoor artist has to learn to adapt to conditions , in this DVD Chris paints both under a blazing summer sun and in heavy rain! It's the rain picture which he was forced to complete in just 45 minutes which is featured on the DVD front cover. As Chris says: "It just shows you what you can do when you are up against the clock!" This DVD - like all our releases - is available in both PAL format for Europe and most of the world and NTSC format for our friends in Canada, the USA and Japan. If you order on line from our web site you will automatically be sent the correct version for where you live. There are four demonstrations on this DVD with a running time of 90 minutes.

So many people have contacted us asking if we are going to produce a new watercolour DVD with the super talented Ann Blockley after the release of her sell-out new book - Experimental Landscapes In Watercolour. You will be delighted to hear that we are filming again with Ann in September and the DVD will be out before Christmas. The DVD will echo the exciting content of this wonderfully inspiring book.
And good news for all you Steve Hall fans - Steve will be filming his fifth DVD with us next week where he will be showing how to produce winning watercolours painted on location.
And finally some sad news. If you have bought our DVDs filmed on location you may have seen a cute little dog in the background of quite a few of our films - she was even painted by the great Charles Reid in his most recent film for us.
That was our dear Border Terrier Gussie who sadly passed away recently after a long illness. She will be much missed.
From us all at Town House Films - enjoy the summer and Happy Painting!
