The major part of my practice is painting with watercolours and oils. Subject matter includes landscape, portraiture, studies of the human form and still life. The landscapes are often completed on location “Plein Air”. I enjoy being in the landscape and interpreting it ‘live’. The challenge and compositional problems presented inspires and energises my studio work.
Tony will begin with a slide lecture that will be an introduction to his art work, including oils and watercolour painting and drawings. Then, to link in with the ‘Drawing and Painting the Human Form’ group that he runs, he will follow with demonstrating his technique of drawing head and shoulder studies in pencil and charcoal of people in the audience. Tony will also bring along a few portfolio examples of his life drawing and painting.
Demonstrations begin at 1.00pm at the Coach House.
