Here are some of my favourite Links.
(NB - All Links will open in a new Window)




http://www.elfordfineart.co.uk Elford Fine Art - Elford deal with some exceptional painters, past and present and have a vibrant business selling to an invited client base at selected venues.
http://www.rosemaryandco.com/ Rosemary & Co - Inexpensive brushes, but among the finest in the world.  


Paint Croatia - For painting holidays in Croatia.

Lawrence - Art supplier, stocks vast range including Lukas paints from old established European manufacturer - very bright and permanent, smaller range but many single pigment colours hence equalling much larger range. DVP paints - inexpensive, large tubes, good colours, burnt sienna not the same as British. M V Graham honey based watercolours, bright and permanent. Old Holland, massive range but only derived through many multi pigment colours. Useful as pans as intensely strong pigment loadings. Some use many pans rather than mixing colour on palette. Tubes are strong.    


The Society for All Artists - the best thing that has happened to art for years. British based but a worldwide success. Rapidly expanding organisation for people who want to paint, and professionals who want to help them - (we work voluntarily). The SAA will help you whatever your medium, and with other things too - insurance, arts council funding, self promotion, self confidence to name a few.


Teaching Art - Producers of art teaching videos - the market leader.


Search Press - Virtual inventors of the practical art and craft book as we know it. Creative engine for the world art publishing trade who imitated them. Biggest publisher dedicated solely to practical art books. Watch out for other titles on ecology - worth grabbing when they are published - recent English woodland book is a rare and beautiful classic, see the catalogue. 


David & Charles Publishing - Superb West Country publisher covering many bases Started in the 1960s by a railway enthusiast and famous for this subject among others such as the best gardening and DIY books. Books on some of the most famous contemporary artists. Among the best fineart book publishers in the world. Currently producing a Joe Francis Dowden definitive landscape and seascape book, the culmination of much work. Head office marked by a remarkable architectural edifice, a giant Great Western Railway company latticed girder signal gantry, complete with signalling superstructure. A clever and creative organisation.
