Step by Step, San Niccolo along the Arno

The scene of the San Niccolo tower and the reflected morning light in the Arno is a popular one among artists and students of art, living in Florence. It pops out of the opposite riverbanks trees and is complimented by the remains of a mill at the weir opposite. The calmness in the water created by the weir creates beautiful reflections in the early morning and is best from 9am onwards. A civilized hour for a working artist to begin a painting..............click on the link below to continue…See More

SS fountain color

"Thanks very much Sheila. It was 2 hours in the making. A small panel and I was under pressure to finish as someone wanted to buy it. I'll do this again in a week to hopefully capture more of the light on the fountain."

Step by step through the streets of Belgrade.

There are so many ways to paint a landscape or cityscape. I made a step by step demo on my blog for anyone who's interested in one particular method. There are a few other approaches that I use but I like this because it's more open to interpretation and less concerned with accuracy. This is painted in Belgrade,…

Turners Intriguing Seascape

While researching one of my favorite landscape painters, William Turner, I learned a little about the back story of one his seascapes which now resides in the John Paul Getty Museum.

Hope you are doing well Tom. Your work looks great. I had to shut down my .ning site a few months back. So I'm sneaking in on this one occasionally. Great to see you are doing some teaching/workshops. I hope to someday do the same—getting to old for my advertising work and the time I should be spending improving it gets spent painting.

Love your paintings Tom. Happy to be your friend.

Hi Tony
It starts on the 11th and I think continues for 3 weeks. There's been a break down in communications about the final dates so I can't clarify that.

Best
Tom
