A little YouTube Vlog video with links to the full real time narrated lessons of How to draw a portrait of Harry, Ron and Hermione from Harry Potter using simple art techniques.
Could it be simple to solve the NHS £886 Million pound deficit in 2017? Is it the fault of the Rich, the Super Rich, Tax Avoidance, Bad Government?.. Or is there a simple solution?
Here from my art studio where I normally do my drawings, paintings and how to draw videos I listen to the radio, like so many of you, and hear the news. So here are some simple thoughts, not a rant, from a simpleton. Musing whether there is a solution that can very quickly sort out the NHS, not just now but here after too.
There are some simple mathematics involved and it could be that a few could sort this out – or many – or a combination of the two.
So get a brew and listen to my thoughts on this subject in this short Youtube Video. My links to the articles in the video are below.

Here is a 30 second vlog showing Jenny Tinmouth signing her fine art prints of her on the full factory Honda Racing BSB Fireblade CBR1000RR Superbike taken from my oil on linen canvas painting.
Here si a quick Vlog Update about my Michael Dunlop 2016 Isle of Man Senior TT and Jenny Tinmouth 2016 BSB oil paintings. Plus a little information about my ‘How to Draw’ videos.
WIP time-lapse YouTube video update on my Guy Martin 2015 TT Smiths Racing Triumph Daytona 675 oil painting. With a little Vlog update on our family and why this has taken soooo long.
Quick little Vlog on my latest three art projects. Joey Dunlop, Jonathan Rea and Guy Martin oil paintings.
This Vlog is a question to Winsor & Newton in regards of their artist oils range of wonderful paints.
Yesterday I painted the left arm of Michael Dunlop’s leathers on my oil painting of him fro the 2014 Isle of Man TT on which he made history for BMW by winning for them for the first time in 75 years at the world famous TT races.
I used Cobalt Blue along with Ultramarine and a few other colours and I work alla prima most of the time to get the detail I require but when I came to put more Cobalt blue paint on my pallete to do Michael’s right boot a lot of oil came out and not the ‘cream cheese’ I am used to painting with. This also has happened with Winsor Lemon and my Ivory Black. This very oily paint stopped me from doing the detail that I normally achieve with your excellent paints.
I can’t think that this is normal so I am looking forward to Winsor & Newton letting me know why this is happening and if it will stop or if I have some dud paint.
Just a quick thought Vlog on what will happen to the cost of post if Scotland votes for Independence.
I currently can post a large Letter to Northern Ireland and it costs £1:20 and if it goes to Sourthern Ireland it costs £3:70 as it is not part of the UK and classed as a foreign country. Will this happen to Scotland and the post? Will a CN22 customs form be needed as they will not be able to join the EU straight away either? Just a thought from someone who posts prints to Scotland for my work.
Four of the blessings of working from home (along with family) are the Hens at the bottom of our garden. Here is a short video showing the chickens who live in ‘Stalag 13’ and have a lot of space to cluck around in and who provide us with lovely free range eggs.
Just a short video update Vlog in the link below on how as an artist you have to work through being tired, just like anyone else who goes to work, and not the rubbish pontificated by some that they can ‘only paint when they are inspired’.
My new art includes The Isle of Man TT’s fastest newcomer Peter Hickman and some new Toy Story ‘How to Draw’ films.
