I started my career as a professional artist in 1985, prior to this I worked for the forestry commision. Although I have produced many paintings over the years, I still feel the same enthusiasm every time I am faced with a blank canvas. Recently I have derived great pleasure from passing on my various techniques to students in my classes, some of whom have gone on to be successful artists themselves. Since 2012 I have been building up a selection of Oil Painting Tutorial DVDs and I frequently send them world wide. On facebook I have set up a closed group specifically for people who have purchaced my DVDs and many of them have become good friends.
Living in Cornwall I am surrounded by inspirational land and seascapes. I try to capture the atmosphere and light of these special places in my paintings. I am especially fond of the early morning and evening light when the sun is low in the sky. My current project is
“Alan was friendly and helpful throughout. His depth of knowledge of painting techniques was second to none, and I learnt such a lot on my course” ”Enrico Fabrigaz”
I hold oil painting workshops in two different ways. The regular group workshops are with a max of 4 people. These are held one day per month.
I also do a ONE TO ONE TUITION which is booked to suit the student so they can do as little or as many days as they like.
The ONE TO ONE TUITION is £125 per day.
During these workshops I take each person stage by stage through a painting showing the various techniques I use to complete a picture.
These classes are for all abilities from the total novice to the more experienced painter. Please contact me for more information
In my DVDs I take you through the whole painting from start to finish. Clear written instructions show you the various techniques that I have developed over the years.
All Dvd`s are available in PAL and NTSC format.
When ordering more than one DVD please email me with the list that you would like and I will send you the paypal link. On sales of our Tutorial DVDs we accept credit and debit cards via PayPal. Thank you. I also offer a small discount for bulk orders.

If anyone is interested in painting B/W you should watch Alan's dvd "North Coast in black and white" It is the best instructional dvd that I have ever watched. You can really see the master at work and for anyone that has problems interpreting foam the last section is spellbinding, really!!!…” “ Agreed. I also really enjoyed the bonus video, which I hadn`t expected…” “Clark Lind”
