We are constantly adding to our range of stock both in store and on this website - however it is virtually impossible to keep it all 100% up to date on here. If you can not find what you're looking for, or if you would simply prefer to speak to a human, please do contact us and we will happily advise when your desired product will be available or if there is an alternative product that be suitable or even better for you. We take many orders over the phone with the demise of many peoples local art store - there is always someone here who knows about all our products and will happily take the time to help you out.

Wherever you are based we know how much art can bring to you. We want you to be able to paint and draw to the best of your ability, so we do everything we can to make it possible for you to do so, and to be kind on your pocket too!

We do not stock products that will not achieve the purpose that you are buying them for. This means that you will only find brands on here that consistently produce reliable quality products, but we always endeavour to ensure that they are at the best prices - ensuring that you are always getting the best value for money from South West Art. You can search through our products either by category or by manufacturer, safe in the knowledge that whatever you purchase will be of the very best quality and at the very best prices!

We provide a quality Picture Framing Service, and have a Gallery of work by artists local to us in the South West of the UK.

Hints & Tips

Zest It and Oil Pastels

Add Zest It, low odour turpentine substitute, to oil pastels and discover a whole new painting medium.

Carry your water in your brush!

No need to take lots of equipment out with you - take an Aquash brush and your watercolour pencils and sketch on the move.
