When I was painting Warrington from Fox Cemetery it was a bright but misty day and this is what I aimed to capture, it was an extremely cold day but many of the people passing by stopped to talk and take a look at the painting.

I was approached by a guy called James who travelled around the country writing a blog of his journey and he took the photo that you see above.

A big thanks to James for putting the painting on your web blog at www.narrowboatchance.blog.com

Van Gogh Workshop with Marc A Turner At Castle Park Arts Centre

The Van Gogh Workshop went really well and the results were extremely good from everyone, here are the results from some amazingly talented painters.

The painting of Landscape with Green Corn after Vincent Van Gogh was carried out using oil paints of the same colour pigments and using the same techniques from broken dashes through to using the paint straight from the tube and mixing on the support.

As Vincent originally painted the Landscape with Green Corn, the colours are extremely vibrant and full of life.

Turner Basic Oil Painting Course

The students on the Turner basic oil painting course carried out a study using distemper to create an under painting and then complete the oil painting over the distemper under painting, the painting of Apples, Pear and a stone cup after Jean-Baptiste-Siméon Chardin, as we are on week eight of the course everyone managed to put their own mark on the subject with excellent results.

The Turner basic oil painting course is structured for the complete beginner or people wishing to get back into oil painting, it deals with many aspects of painting from colour mixing, learning about the values in painting, the basics of 1 and 2 point perspective and a list of painting methods such as direct and indirect painting.

Marc takes the students through a step by step process to get everyone to have a good grounding for painting anything.

The feedback has been positive with students stressing that they have learned more in a few classes than they have learned on any other course.

Marc believes that anyone can learn to paint and encourages everyone to have a go and realise the joy of creating your very own masterpiece.

Happy painting, Marc;)

Painting of Warrington from Fox Cemetery

On 11th March whilst making a painting of Warrington from Fox Cemetery, some walkers came past and asked if they could have a look at how my painting was getting on, James and Doug write a daily blog on their travels and James asked if he could take a photo for his blog, I was delighted as I didn’t have my camera with me and even more delighted to find it on the blog at; www.narrowboatchance.blogspot.com

Unfortunately I hadn’t been there very long so not much of the painting had been done at this stage, it was starting to get cold and within a couple of hours I was forced to give up with frozen fingers.

After The Storm Turner after Turner

After the storm is a painting I have wanted to paint this picture for so long as it means so much to me.

After the storm after Turner

I am extremely pleased with the outcome and I’ve not even glazed it yet.

I have been looking at this painting After the storm by J M W Turner for many years be it in a book or a print, and last year when I went down to London on a visit I saw it first hand, for me it was one of J M W Turners simplest of paintings that focused you straight into the dog, It got me thinking, Why has he made it so simple to view the painting, and then it came to me, you can imagine the silence after the storm being broken by the dog, is it a warning not to sit back on our laurels as nothing in life is so calm, there is always something about to rock the boat and our world at the same time, so when you stand in front of a Turner and you think you understand it, think again as everything that J M W Turner painted had something hidden within the work.

I found it a relatively easy piece to paint although I know I can improve on it, and that’s the joy, just knowing that the next time I paint it I can make it that bit better.

This particular painting is relatively small, measuring 40cm x 30cm oil on canvas, 4 coats of my own made gesso and then using my Turner oil paints I did an imprimatur in Raw Sienna before continuing the with the painting.

The painting beginning was basically large blocking in then moving to the medium blocking in and finally the smaller details.

After the painting had all the details I required, I finished off with a small amount of impasto to bring out the highlights.

All that is required now is a few glazing coats and its ready to sell.

M A Turner.

We are pleased to have our oil colours in the Taylor gallery as we don’t just see them as the tools of the artist, but as art them selves, in the display we have a small copy of a Seago painted by our very own Turner.

The quality of the paints are superb and lend themselves to both Direct and indirect painting giving the professional and amateur artist the most important tools to work with, we are constantly looking at our paints and trying them out with different Master techniques to see if we can improve on our already amazing quality.

We are continuing to look at increasing the range without over saturating the lines in order to maintain the skills of the artist and painter among our shoppers to continue to mix paint the traditional way in order to achieve a given colour hue.

Marc A Turner runs regular courses using the paints, so if someone wants to try them out, just come along to a course and have a go. Try out a basic oil course or if you are a confident painter, try one of our Master painting workshops and paint something to be proud of.

We at Turner Oil Colours believe that all artist should be able to use the finest quality materials at competitive prices.
