Art classes in Dorset. Painting Workshops and One to One Personal Painting Lessons in Highcliffe

Painting is about uninhibited creativity and that is what I aim to inspire into my students by personal one to one art classes in my studio in Highcliffe Dorset.


We need to know how to paint for sure, but we have the freedom to create whatever we want to and this can be easily overlooked and even forgotten. To paint with feeling, to find your passion and express it on paper or canvas, or anything else for that matter, is simply wonderful and I can help you to do that.

powerful different abstract paintings with feeling to make you pause and wonder

 The feeling or emotion in the painting has to be personal and passionate. A painting is a powerful way to communicate and it can exceed any vocabulary. I work to create visible feelings for you to engage with. My art has been described as calming, quiet, still, mysterious, uplifting, disturbing, imaginative, powerful, passionate dreamlike, enigmatic, unusual and intriguing. I want you to connect with my art and make your own interpretation, to have the art communicate with you personally

What is "original" art?...  Original paintings are truly unique and developed by the artist's own idea and created in their own way. Buy authentic art, you will never have seen it before and you will not see copies. I am Alan brain UK artist and that is what happens when you buy my art. You will own a genuine original painting that is guaranteed authentic art. It is my own idea, my unique thought provoking creation, not a fashionable trendy painting that is just like all those others, or a close, thinly disguised replica of someone else's work. I paint my way not for the marketplace but for the individual who appreciates originality.


Why abstract paintings? … Some paintings, usually called representational or figurative, describe something. They remind us of places we have seen or people we have known.  Paintings we call abstracts, do not necessarily convey anything recognisable and can be interpreted in any way. A lot are a collection of shapes, colours, texture and lines that make a pleasing painting but somehow lack substance. Others get right to the heart of our emotions; they can create a distinct feeling within ourselves. This artwork draws us and converses with us, it is personal, we are interpreting it in our own way. It does not happen for every abstract painting we ever view, normally only a few paintings seriously engage us. And of course some figurative art is also engaging but usually for reasons that are more clearly understandable.

I paint abstract paintings with a powerful emotion. Some may call it a semi abstract painting but who cares what it is called? My only objective is to capture a feeling that engages you, intrigues you, mystifies you and makes you think. To do this I will paint anything in any way, at the moment it is coming out as abstract or semi abstract art. 

I paint what seriously interests me and all are   original paintings  for sale from the artist - me.  I love to create  geometric paintings  and you will see the influence in all of my work I think.  All the artworks are   abstract paintings  but you may recognise some shapes in some of the pieces.  I am interested in body language, the connection (or not) between people is intriguing as is a solo figure whose stance says everything about them. This is truly fascinating to me. You can see some examples in my page  abstract figure paintings.  Flying, aviation has been a passion for all my life and it appears in my artwork unconsciously sometimes, here are some examples of my  abstract aviation art  I love solitude and have painted it for years now, the desert personifies solitude for me and I have spent time in remote places in Arizona and New Mexico, here are some examples of my  abstract desert art . A while back my personal passionate feelings about war in general and world war one in particular inspired me to paint my own comments on conflict. My  war series  is there for you to see. Most rercently my being appalled by reversals to reduce  pollution-to-our-planet  have resulted in a series of paintings.


I live in Dorset in U.K. where I have my  art studio . Visitors are welcome almost any time and you can view my finished art together with work in progress. I am an art teacher too and give  one to one tuition  and  painting workshops  at my studio
