About the Author

Dave Woolass is one of the UK's leading artists with a strong art background spanning more than forty years. Born and raised in Yorkshire, UK, he began his working life as a trainee manager within the retail industry. Painting and drawing were always his first loves, however, and it was inevitable that Dave should turn to making a living from his artwork.

For many years Dave has delivered private art classes to small groups of students, and has delivered workshops and seminars nationwide for various art societies and galleries. He has frequently been commissioned by companies to demonstrate art materials at art events as well as on live television.

Dave's artwork features in many collections across the globe including UK, USA, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, Japan, and the Middle East, and he has also appeared on the popular UK TV programme, 'A Brush with Fame'.

In 2001 the Fine Art Trade Guild of Great Britain elected Dave to the Court of the Guild in 2001. He was elected as The Masters Warden in 2003 and was ultimately elected 'Master of the Fine Art Trade Guild' in 2004.


For a general appreciation, please look at the series tag above. I like the new iteration of the old Ready to Paint series a lot and these latest volumes diminish that not a jot.

Dave Woollass is a new author and one I hope we'll see more of. He has a pleasantly loose style that's readily achievable and explains his working methods well. He's also comfortable with the variety of subject matter that the series demands and this would be a book worth seeking out even if the series in general isn't your regular cup of tea.
