TV Series
"Crawshaw Paints Acylics"

has now been made into a Double DVD Set
Crawshaw Paints Acylics

8 x 25 minute chapters + 2 Picture Galleries over 2 DVD's

This series was shot entirely on location, in and around the scenic Ring of Kerry in south west Ireland, which provided Alwyn and June with some fantastic landscapes and scenery to paint.
Acrylic paints combine the best aspects of oil and watercolour, as well as having their own unique qualities.
This DVD provides a step-by-step guide to the techniques and materials needed for painting in acrylic and the eight chapters combine to make a complete course.
A wide range of locations and subjects are painted, including the inside of a pub, a still life of flowers, thatched cottages and the famous Lakes of Killarney.
