Painters notes
Mountain routes in Spain


He has been an artist and teacher for many years in the UK and is now living in the mountains of the Costa Blanca in Spain with his wife Liz.

The building of Estudio de Font Blanca was started in 2004 in the beautiful Tárbena valley. It is a fantastic location set amongst high mountains and surrounded by pine trees and cultivated terraces of almonds and olive trees. The main house and studio were finished a year later. Since that time much work has been done developing the gardens and the terraces.

His paintings and photography are mainly based on the figure and the human condition. If you require further information or prices please contact

After years of teaching it has been a pleasure writing notes about various aspects of drawing and painting. The writing is based on a combination of experience gained teaching students and in the skills and decision making developed producing his own work. The Painters notes can be downloaded as PDF files and are available to help individual students develop aspects of their own work.

The mountains of the Costa Blanca are a fantastic mix of canyons, rock climbs, long ridges and mountains walks. There is still great potential to develop new routes and new climbs in this area. On this page are photo galleries of established classics plus information and photos of new mountain ridges that Tom and his friends have developed.
