John Hammond paints wonderfully vibrant paintings using acrylic paints and in this film he shows us his technique. Painting on the Devon coast, he covers a wide variety of subject matter including the marshland and waters of the river Otter, the Exe estuary, and the surrounding landscape. He also works in his studio, producing a large painting of wild geese in the marshes, using sketches from his painting trip as source material.
John Hammond studied at Wimbledon Art College and Bath Academy of Art. He exhibits in London and at select regional galleries, has held many highly successful solo exhibitions and his work is in collections worldwide. He has been elected an Academician by the South West Academy of Fine and Applied Arts.

I watched this dvd today and enjoyed much of it. John Hammond produced several beautiful demo paintings but I was disappointed in the lack of information about the colours used. His palette comprised cool and warms red, yellow, blue and purples. There was certainly a lot of vandyke red and pthalo blue used, but which blue was used for the sky and water, and how was the "coral" colour obtained? How were the greens mixed and what colours gave the sky its pinky tinge, and so on? A bit more information would have improved this dvd for me.

I've bought many DVD's from the APV series and this is without doubt the best. It is not only easy to watch, but it's also extremely informative. Some artists know how to paint but not how to teach - this guy knows how to do both. Thomas Mcquiggan (Bolton, United Kingdom) on 17 Nov 2014
