Welcome to the new official Terry Harrison website
Please join me on Facebook and Twitter.
Welcome to my website I hope you will enjoy the site and benefit from the many free tutorials, information and SHOP. You will find the SHOP on the left hand side, with different categories that you can move the cursor over and click on the items you want to look at. You can choose to view the shop prices in US$ or Euros as well as British £. A new addition is the opportunity to buy original paintings direct through the site.
Above, you will see a menu bar, click on whichever part of the website you would like to visit. Navigating through the site should be nice and easy for you.
I have been painting for many years using watercolour and acrylics and over that time amassed a variety of painting techniques and skills, I hope you will find that I am very open and free with the knowledge that I have and more than happy to share it with you.
I have developed a range of specialist brushes including the now famous fangogh and watercolour paints, my three greens, autumn shades and shadow colour designed to make painting easier. I have also written a series of books, the first A Brush with Watercolour published in 2001 has sold over 140,000 copies. Original paintings from my latest books as well as new paintings will be available for sale soon.
Some of my paintings were specifically painted as jigsaw puzzles, commissioned by Gibson’s the well-known puzzle and games company. My latest jigsaw is of Scarborough and seems to be very popular. There have also been various teaching DVDs produced, some of these are available from the SHOP.
You will also be able to access free tuition from this site in the form of step-by-step projects which you are able to download onto your computer. If you would like to know how to use the individual brushes available there are also how to use tips provided in the TUTORIALS section. I also offer one-day watercolour workshops covering a range of subjects and available throughout the country as well as residential workshops in different locations in the UK. You will be able to see me demonstrating at art shows or perhaps at your art society.
Terry painting on the village green in September
I managed to paint a very large painting of my favourite bridge, it was a very busy week end so I could only paint in the morning to avoid the crowds. The painting took two mornings to complete, but I am very happy with it.
This painting has been sold and shipped to Korea.
Going home after a hard days work at the office! Back home where my wife (who is also a painter) is probably painting too! Fiona Peart
You can also watch me on Sky TV channel 166 or click on this link to watch me painting a thatched cottage part 1.
If you enjoyed part 1, you'll love part 2!
I produced a DVD a few years ago using Acrylics to accompany my book Brush with Acrylics watch a younger Terry paint a poppyfield in Provence - you can buy the full DVD from my shop.
In an attempt to keep you informed of what’s going on there is a news page with regular updates and photos.
