Hi I'm Richard Robinson. I've been a professional painter since 2001. My claim to fame is only that I'm making a living as an artist and doing pretty well - something which I hear is not so easy to do, and I guess it does take a lot of work, but it's work that I love doing.
You can see my painting website here: www.newzealandartist.com or some paintings on this site here: Archived Paintings.
I've been teaching painting nearly as long as I've been learning, and I enjoy helping other's along the path as much as I enjoy learning from other artists. I started out in graphic design which is why I enjoy combining my talents in making these video lessons and putting them on the web. So far over 100,000 people around the world have seen my videos, which I think is pretty cool, and I get to meet a lot of them too which is even better.
Some of those artist's have let me put their own teaching lessons on this website, which I'm very grateful for too because it gives artists access to a bigger range of learning than what I alone can provide.
I've tried to keep my prices pretty reasonable and not get too greedy, so if you find something you're interested in on this site I encourage you to give it a go because that's how I'm learning too - I just find other artist's whose work moves me and if they're offering teaching too I grab anything and everything they've got!
Anyway, that's enough with the sales pitch - it's all about the painting, so have a look around the site and enjoy.

You are the best art teacher I have ever seen in the past 25 years... I have read hundreds of books but I have to say you have come up with the right approach and the right technique..."
