I am a figurative artist – a realist – generally working directly from my own observations. I aim to communicate something of how I feel about each subject while concentrating on the discipline of direct drawing and painting (“alla prima”) from life. I regularly paint the East Anglian landscape (in particular the Waveney and Blyth Valleys) including compositions that may also feature figures and animals in a natural setting.
Life drawing has always been a part of my regular practice. Life studies and drawings are always available for purchase from a browser in my studio. There will also be a small number of unframed pictures available as “studio clearance” – as well as greetings cards and prints taken from my original artwork.
Malcolm is currently Chair of HWAT. He is widely respected for his mentoring and tuition in “traditional” drawing and painting techniques and has appeared many times on the Painting and Drawing TV Channel. He was a regular contributor to “Paint” magazine and demonstrates to art groups all over the UK. He is a Silver Signature Member of the UK Coloured Pencil Society (past editor of the Society’s magazine) and a member of several other formal and informal art groups. His commissioned and other work is in many private collections and he is a UK product ambassador for Derwent pencils, Daniel Smith original oils and Pan Pastels. His instructional DVD set – “Yes You Can Draw” has inspired and encouraged countless artists in the UK and abroad.
