DVDs & Videos by Joe Francis Dowden

I have presented and demonstrated on TV and even painted live on radio! I have a friendly, fairly lively approach, born of demonstrating to Art Societies, but I deliver hard edged techniques useful for professional painters.

My Videos and DVD's are all produced and published by Teaching Art Ltd.

Two in One Watercolour - Part 1
Sea, Sky and a Shingle Beach

"Two in One Watercolour" has a shingle beach technique which one of which my friends advised me against revealing. It sorts out foregrounds and the millions of stones on a beach. They look realistic and all in perspective. How do you do it? The technique does it for you. Watch the video.

One piece of advice though - you must use a tough paper. Try Arches 140lb not. You will also need a whole bottle of masking fluid - Winsor & Newton.

Two in One Watercolour - Part 2
Woodland and Water

Produce a labyrinth of textured foliage and a maze of diffusing and exploding colours, as I show you how to build realistic pictures. You will be able to create a sense of depth as well as bring sunlight and reflections into your painting.

Water in Watercolour

Water is a favourite subject of watercolour artists, but it takes some expertise to get it right. I will explain in detail how I create my paintings of water. In easy to follow step-by-step demonstrations, I reveal the colours and techniques you need to produce wonderful watercolours. The beautiful paintings of the natural world reproduced in this video will inspire you to have a go for youselves.
