Welcome to my exciting new website.

I’m Robert Newcombe; I’m a professional watercolour artist, art tutor and writer. I've published numerous articles on painting in Leisure Painter and Paint & Draw, and a successful book on painting called Robert Newcombe's 5 C's of Painting.

Features of this website are:

• An introduction to my highly successful 5C’s of Painting offering you fast improvement in your paintings of any subject in any medium. The 5C’s system is now the basis for all my teaching and coaching. An example of the 5C’s in action is used to illustrate the system.

• The Virtual Studio is an online blog space where you can join me in my studio to see current painting projects through step-by-step demonstrations using my 5 C's of Painting, reviews of tools and techniques of watercolour and practical tips on watercolour materials and practice.

• The Gallery showcases paintings in each of my three painting styles – Impressionistic Line and Wash that clearly shows the two stages – line and wash – for each painting, Impressionistic Watercolour, and Impressionistic Sketches, many painted on site.
