Essentially a "plein air" painter, David Curtis is inspired by the landscape and the ever changing light. Here we see him painting in the dramatic scenery of the Lake District and on the north coast of Cornwall. Selecting his subjects carefully he achieves drama and a wonderful feeling of light and mood in his paintings, capturing the essence of his subjects.

Run Time: 110 minutes

DVD Capturing the Moment in Oils

David paints on a glorious day in the Peak District with the last of the winter snow still lying on the ground. He then travels in early spring to the spectacular scenery of Cinque Terre in Italy, five little villages built into the rocks between the sea and the steeply terraced hillsides. Here he paints views of the busy streets and harbours with their brightly coloured houses and boats

Run Time: 90 minutes

DVD Light & Mood in Watercolour

Painting outdoors in all weather conditions is very important to David. Working in pure watercolour in a loose and immediate way he is able to capture the light and mood of a place. Here he chooses to paint the pastural scenery of his native Yorkshire in the early spring as well as the city streets of London and Paris. He also works in his studio, painting a more considered watercolour using an oil painting as source material.

Run Time: 90 minutes

DVD Painting with Impact

David takes his oil paints to the lovely island of Mallorca, where he selects a range of different subjects. These include wonderfully ramshackle buildings on Deia beach, a view looking across to Valdemossa, a sunlit garden with building and a beach scene. Returning to his studio, he works up a studio painting of an old town centre, using as a guide a watercolour he painted in Mallorca.

Run Time: 90 minutes

A Light Touch: Landscapes in Oils/ Light in the Landscape

Twin pack containing 2 David Curtis DVDs: A LIGHT TOUCH: LANDSCAPES IN OILS - David's unique approach to oil painting enables him to capture the mood and atmosphere of his subjects. Working in his native Yorkshire, he paints Staithes harbour with boats moored in the river, a colourful beach scene and an autumnal view of bridge and stream painted 'contre jour'.

LIGHT IN THE LANDSCAPE - The effect of light is all important in David's work and in this film he once again paints in oils, choosing a variety of different subjects to illustrate his way of painting. He captures sparkling water, shining roofs and reflections, painting views of the harbour, streets and boats of Staithes. He then travels to the Peak District, painting two different views of farm buildings nestling against the rolling hills in the afternoon light.

Run Time: 140 minutes

A Personal View: Landscapes in Watercolour / Light Effects in Watercolour

Twin pack containing 2 David Curtis DVDs: A PERSONAL VIEW: LANDSCAPES IN WATERCOLOUR - Painting in Cornwall, David illustrates his approach to watercolour. Boats in an estuary and the village of Cadgwith viewed from the beach are painted on site. A further scene of a wooded bay with boats is painted in the studio, using an oil painting as source material.

LIGHT EFFECTS IN WATERCOLOUR - David has a wonderful eye for choosing subjects and here he concentrates mainly on interiors. Firstly an old forgotten corner of a barn with farm implements and light streaming through the door, then the interior of a boat builders yard with work in progress. As a slightly simpler subject he paints in a farmyard - an old barn, trees and lots of atmosphere.

Run Time: 120 minutes
