The Charles Bridge dominates the ancient city of Prague. With its huge stone gatehouses, inspiring statues and cobbled walkways, the subjects all add to the distinct Medieval atmosphere. At night the whole area is lit up with incredible, subtle light and it is this aspect that we'll be focusing on for this tutorial.

This landscape is one of my favourite local views and a real childhood haunt. The Carn faces the sweep of Mounts Bay in West Cornwall, and I have chosen this subject as an exercise in creating depth and distance using colour and tone. You can use these same techniques to add depth to your local landscape and be sure to send in your results, I'd love to see them!

In 2016 I was lucky enough to visit the high Arctic to paint icebergs, Arctic foxes and the king of the ice, the mighty Polar Bear. It was a life changing trip and a unique painting experience. To watch, sketch and paint the Bears was an absolute joy and this tutorial contains a little Arctic magic.

Facing the full force of the Atlantic Ocean is always a treat for the senses, a visual spectacle and coastal scenes as dramatic as this are always compelling subjects to paint. A variety of mark making techniques are used to capture the atmosphere of one of Britain's most photographed landmarks, and I've got some great new brushes to play with too!

This is a brand new subject for me, a salt marsh in Essex that I discovered a couple of months ago. It's a really exciting environment, with a lot of strong shadows and bright highlights. I've never painted this scene before so I am really excited about it, hope you are too!

I was born and brewed just a short stones throw from this lighthouse, and I must have painted it a hundred times. An added challenge this time though was to paint through the grey Cornish mizzle, sudden sparkling sunshine and a blustery breeze. But we love a challenge don't we!?

This tutorial has an extra resonance this week, and is one that I initially felt very unsure about releasing. Filmed just a couple of weeks before the horrific events of 22nd March, this tutorial shows Westminster bridge and a sunset skyline in all of its true beauty, capturing the atmosphere of one of the worlds greatest cities and the enduring spirit of its people.

"Sometimes a man made subject can be so organic in atmosphere that it's as though the subject itself has grown from the very ground itself. Well, the Nine Maidens stone circle is one of those locations. At over 3000 years old the stones make an alluring, ancient subject; and the muted tones sit perfectly with the landscape.

Nanjizal on the Atlantic coast of Cornwall, is a secret, hidden location of magical beauty. It's one if those places that seems to make time stand still, were mermaids could, and probably do reside. Deep, dark caves and still, emerald pools abound, and our task in this tutorial is to capture this otherworldly atmosphere with paint.

"I love to paint lighthouses, the design, the colours and the drama are so captivating. I'm lucky to have one of the most beautiful lighthouses right on my studio doorstep. Godrevy in St Ives Bay was the inspiration for Virginia Woolf's most famous novel 'To the Lighthouse' and now she serves as our creative subject for some windswept, salt aired beauty.
