Welcome to my Patreon channel

I started drawing when I was knee high to a grasshopper but didn’t pick up my first brush until the age of twelve. For many years I have undertaken watercolour, oil, acrylic and graphite commissions and have painted portraits, landscapes and animals. I now paint as a full time artist and have nearly 40 years of experience. I love every minute of my work, but the time always seem to go too quickly when I paint! I live in North Devon, UK and spend many weekends out and about in the local countryside. When I am asked what is my preferred subject I would say without a doubt birds and animals! I love trying to get the life within the eyes in my finely detailed realistic paintings.

My Patreon channel allows me to pass on my passion for watercolours. I love to teach others the techniques I use to create my wildlife portraits and love even more to see the results that they achieve.  For those of you who are not familiar with Patreon, I've given a brief overview below.  Once again thank you for looking up my page and I look forward to working with you.

Patreon is a subscription based platform; once you are a member you get access to the entire back catalogue with new content uploaded monthly.

I am using my channel to teach others how to use the exciting medium of watercolour to paint wildlife. Take a look at what others have achieved already through my tuition. I have nearly 40 years of experience, let my friendly tuition help you avoid the mistakes I’ve made and don’t forget to clear a wall for all the lovely artwork you will soon be creating!


There are 4 levels of subscription depending on what you want. You can change your subscription and your level at any time. The site is in $, but you can subscribe from anywhere in the world. Should you be unsure whether my style of tuition will suit you - take a look at the free content and maybe have a go at painting the robin from start to finish?

Bronze Level $5 gives you access to all project photos, a drawing guide, a full step by step written guide for the current month’s lesson, access to the community support pages and a variety of tips and techniques videos.

Silver Level $10 gives you access to ALL of the above content PLUS 3-5 hours of real time video tuition for EVERY aspect of EVERY project. I explain everything as I paint, I only speed up repetitive sections and I don’t use jargon! Take a look at the back catalogue of projects - you will have instant access to ALL of these.

Gold Level $20 gives you access to ALL of the above content PLUS 2 critiques per month, 5 new Hi-Res reference photos per month, instant access to the back catalogue of photos, I will mention your name in the credits for any videos I make in the current month and every 4 months you will find a signed giclée print of one of my paintings on your doormat.

Platinum Level $30 gives you access to ALL of the above content PLUS a monthly mystery gift delivered to your door and send me a photo of your work from my tutorials and I’ll display it on social media for you.

Enough of me - finally, this is what some of my members have to say about my Patreon channel. Come and join them, I look forward to welcoming you to my channel too!

“In a matter of weeks you have transformed my painting abilities and I can’t thank you enough.” Joy

“What I want to say is that this was my absolute favorite tutorial yet! I feel sad that I am finished. Anyway, thank you so much for your wonderful ability to teach this old dog so many new tricks! I am enjoying painting so much more lately! Thank you!!” Sally

Thank you for an amazing tutorial. I am a beginner and found it easy to follow your instructions.” Marie

Firstly a massive thank you to everyone here, you are amazing!
Now getting to this level will finally enable me to work many more hours for you here on Patreon. To be able to relax without thinking about the need to do non arty work to pay the bills.
So in short I will be able to drop much of my other work and to be able to spend more time with a brush in my hand creating videos for you. So a perfect situation to be in for both myself and you as my artist Patron. :-)
