I hope you enjoy the posts already available on this website, as well as others which I will be contributing in the coming months and years. Most of them will come from my four books. These will cover a wide range of subjects relating to:
- The practice of painting and drawing,
- The history of artists and the evolution of their ideas.
- The science that gives insights into how artists use their eyes when at work.
But there will also be posts giving ‘Painting School News’ and, occasionally, on other ‘Miscellaneous Subjects’.
To find all the posts available please use the array of CATEGORIES (in capital letters) and subcategories (in lower case) that you will find in the left hand column.
Alternatively you can click on one of these links which will take you directly to the post concerned :
- A fresh look at colour and light in painting, based on recent research and forgotten wisdoms.
- An early history of Castelnau de Montmiral: nearer to the true story than you will easily find.

If, after reading a post, you find that the list of categories and subcategories immediately to the left is no longer complete, the full list can always be found in the right hand column at the very bottom of the page (this may sometimes involve quite a lot of scrolling down).
I look forward to your comments. When you have made them, please leave your email address and tick the box “Notify me of new posts by email.”
