Club Nights

4th September A Demonstration by Tony Homer.

Using boats to create a powerful composition.

Tony likes to work on two or three paintings at the same time using the theme of boats and their environment, which could include docks buildings and landscape, to give the work some context. He likes to use flat brushes and starts with thin washes of acrylic to get things going..

Sketchbooks and drawings done on site are key to his practice and he will have many examples of his sketchbooks available to help him decide what to do. He will also have some examples of artists’ work that have influenced his personal development. He likes to use bold colour, texture and contrasts in his work.
