Description

Working with Winsor & Newton Winton Oil Paint Anthony will show you how to create an afternoon delight using brushes and palette knife.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Anthony is a member of NAPA the National Acrylic Painters Association and has been painting for over 30 years he holds a BA (Hons) Fine Art and Certificate in Education and is a professional artist and lecturer and a Member of the Institute for Learning.
Anthony is predominantly a figurative painter with a prolific output that often overflows into the disciplines of landscape, still life and abstract painting. His work stretches the boundary between representational imagery and memory, exploring techniques that become far more important than the painting process itself. Chiefly commissioned based his vast experience and natural talent for capturing the human figure and his portraits that explore the underlying character of the sitter have led to numerous awards. Influences include Gerhard Richter, Lucian Freud, Eric Fischl, Impressionism and the Italian Renaissance his philosophy revolves around the following statement:
“The context within which we experience an event will determine how that event is encoded and retained”
(Oxford Companion to the Mind- Richard L Gregory- 1987)

Anthony has exhibited throughout the UK and has work in private collections across Europe and America. Early in 2007 he was invited to appear in the BBC 2 program “Rolf on Lowry” a televised event where he worked alongside Rolf Harris in the reproduction of Lowry’s painting of ”Piccadilly Gardens” in Manchester.
In 2008 he was commissioned by Tote Sport to produce eight portraits of celebrities using the horsehair of the 2006 Grand National winner Numbersixvalverdie. The finished paintings where exhibited at Aintree over the three days of the Grand National event and later auctioned off to raise money for the Alder Hey Children’s Hospital Imagine Appeal.
