'Awash On The Web' As TV Artist Offers Painting Portal

'Awash on the Web' is a new learn-to-paint portal that offers step-by-step video tutorials on how to paint with water colours.
A spin-off from the popular television programme, the site was launched to art lovers at the recent Arts & Materials Live Exhibition in the UK.
Creator, Dermot Cavanagh, who is from County Tyrone, Awash on the Web is a continuation of his hugely successful BBC TV program, 'Awash with Colour', in which he taught a host of celebrities like boxing superstar Barry McGuigan, singer Brian Kennedy and country and western star George Hamilton IV.
"Awash on the Web came about through a desire to offer more people the opportunity to learn how to paint. I offer one-to-one tuition and painting holiday courses - but with the web site people who love Ireland and love painting can learn in their own homes. With the high penetration of broadband across the world now, I knew the internet could extend our reach.
"Thanks to support from the Department of Enterprise Trade and Investment here in Northern Ireland I was able to bring this idea online. And we can hardly believe the massive volume of interest the site is attracting already."
"The site offers true interactivity to painting enthusiasts everywhere. It allows the user to take part in a series of water colour workshops and tutorials, lets them pause and rewind and work through those very same paintings featured on the TV series at their own leisure, as well as download sketches from which to paint."
Within the first suite of site tutorials, Dermot is filmed showcasing the classic beauty of local landscapes such as Peatlands Park and the Argory in his home county, Tyrone and Cong in Co Mayo where John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara were filmed for the movie The Quiet Man.
Dermot has produced many very successful teaching videos on painting and is a published author of art instructional books. He has appeared on various television and radio programs around the world and has won many awards and favourable reviews by critics for his work.
He is also a regular contributor to Art magazines and publications. Dermot takes painting courses and organizes painting holidays. He demonstrates to art clubs and societies throughout Britain, Ireland and abroad. Dermot is said by Winsor and Newton to be the most credible tutor working in the field of water colour today.
