Welcome To My Online Tuition!


This is where I provide clear and comprehensive, easy to follow instruction to anyone wanting to learn to paint in the impressionist’s style.

About Me

Born in 1957 Howard Jones has been a full time artist since 2009. 

Howard’s style is impressionistic with a leaning towards abstract. He studies out of doors as much as possible in order to find inspiration for his studio work. Other than attending a number of external courses in traditional oil painting and monoprint at Cardiff Art College, Howard is mostly self taught.

Now giving most of his time to tutoring others in the mediums of watercolour and acrylic, Howard’s passion and dedication to helping those wishing to learn to paint for themselves is paramount. His promise to those with a genuine desire to learn is that he will pass on everything that he has personally learnt by straight forward easy to follow instruction and constructive advice.

I have recently attended a few of Howard's zoom lessons and found them to be very well structured, with excellent pre-class information (including photos, sketches, thoughts on how to approach the painting) then a well paced and often exhilarating painting demonstration, followed by a very helpful & detailed critique on my painting. Overall an excellent and encouraging teacher with a fascinating economic watercolour technique.

I have thoroughly enjoyed attending Howard’s watercolour classes for the past 3 years. I have learned many new techniques and now have more confidence with painting in a loose style. His painting demonstrations are always combined with a detailed explanation covering all levels of ability. I especially appreciate that he takes the time to comment and give positive and constructive individual feedback.

I was attracted to Howard’s exciting artwork by its looseness, simplicity and freshness. His classes that I have attended over 3 years, are friendly, full of fun and inspiring. Howard is an excellent tutor who guides his students with great enthusiasm instilling in them confidence, creativity and technical knowledge.

"Howard's classes are always lively and imaginative. I have been to his weekly lessons, art society demonstrations and now, his on-line classes and workshops. He's very generous with his own artistic ideas and techniques and always offers help and guidance."
V Williams

Late in life, five years ago and with no experience, I joined Howard's watercolour class. He encouraged this complete novice to give it a go. All of his classes have been very enjoyable, informative and very worthwhile. Howard is always very encouraging, instructive and makes the classes a pleasure to attend.

“Over the years as an officer of Cowbridge Art Society  I have often recommended employing Howard for his enlightened art demonstrations. He has a wonderful relaxed and engaging manner which always attracts a large audience. His skills are not only with the paint brush, but also in his analysis and explanations of the problems involved in painting. I personally have learnt a great deal from attending his classes and he has managed to loosen my approach to watercolours.”

I have been a student for a year at Howard's Chapel Cottage studio watercolour course also attended his other workshops and spent time on a painting holiday that he facilitated. I found these experiences invaluable to my progress as a watercolourist  and latterly my work in acrylics, (he is very generous in sharing his skills and personal techniques) In the current Covid 19 situation, he has been proactive in enabling myself and others to take advantage the zoom workshops, (very patiently to those of us who were not technically minded) which he organised. These have been so beneficial to us and thoroughly enjoyable and I would have no hesitation in recommending any of Howard's courses. Many thanks Howard
