A great collection of instructional ebooks relevant for all artists and easy to access. “Painting with Ev Hales ” is a series of 10 digital ebooks that you can carry in your ipad, tablet, phone or computer anywhere at anytime – they weigh nothing.
I am a trained art teacher and have enjoyed sharing my knowledge with others over more decades than I care to count. I wanted to create a way for others to access this knowledge when I no longer wish to physically teach, or to be available for those who do not live close enough to come painting with me. This is where the 10 ebook series “Painting with Ev Hales” started. The 10 ebooks cover most subjects and although most images are watercolour the basic information is relevant across all media. A comprehensive knowledge bank in digital form is the result of these endeavours.

Watch Ev painting a landscape in the forest and a full sheet watercolour of roses. Listen as she clearly explains the process. A remarkable DVD.
People often learn most by watching what artists do – how they hold the chosen brush, how the brush is loaded with pigment, what pigments are used and why – and all of that is just the technical aspect. There is the other side of the problem the subjects chosen and the different characteristics of each one.
Ev clearly explains what she does as she paints. More importantly she explains Why. many videos have an accompanying musical feature that does not let the artist talk while they are working. In Ev’s full length DVD’s and downloads she explains as she works, giving you a unique insight into the problems and at least one possible solution.
Thus far she has produce 2 full length demonstrations and more are in the editing. One is a 3 hr DVD “Painting Roses 1.” the other an hour download file of “Forest Mood” capturing the light through the forest. You will also find extensions to the You Tube ( eg Episode 1 Evening Light Rottnest Island) demonstrations as downloads from the link.
