Tales of the Atelier publications!

A visual diary the 'Tales' is a wild journey into the old time European ateliers. It's like waking up from many dreams and then getting back into another storyboard, so many mementos, so much to illustrate. Memoirs that poke and prod your imagination too!

The Atelier brings the richness to you

Remember that vineyard you've always wanted to paint? Here are found modules to add more intense colours to your palette.

Impressionism is a walk in the paddock

Impressionism 'old style' is a walk in the fields if you know how. The idea is to know how to go about doing Impressionism styles, presented from the original lectures.

The Atelier lives up to your expectations

If your creative expectations are 'tegenlicht' clouds you may even surpass your expectations; then your expectations will begin to spur on layers of more expectations of their own which of course the Atelier will be able to fulfill.

The Atelier is a breath of fresh creativity

Atelier life is like being high up on a mountain. You get up there and you do not want to climb back down because suddenly Impressionism is clear. It's like being above the toxic art world and surviving in a newly found pearl essence, a crisp atmosphere you simply need to explore.

New Art Workshops dedicated web is coming!
Current members will be notified soon.

My 'Art School' web site deals with Impressionism practice and narration. After deliberation a view formed that practice of art and the storytelling that inspires it should be clearly delineated and separate. To that end a new 'Art Workshops' web site is being built to feature the practice of art and each ripping yarn will be on another site. Members will not loose anything and hopefully benefit from the segregation.
