Artist Statement
for Tony Stubbs
Tony StubbsRapidly approaching 70, but still working part time as lecturer(electronic engineering), working part time does give me more time to pursue my interests. I have no real formal training , but copious encouragement by inspiring art teacher has has kept me motivated even after over fifty years!
I like to work in many mediums, acrylic, watercolour, pastel, ink, pencil, coloured pencil, charcoal etc and sometimes experiment with mixing media with various degrees of success.
I am now trying to escape from the tight painting style that I have been used to doing, examples of which are seen here and have been experimenting with a looser style and using mixed media, its good fun, though not always successful!
Do you paint ever in watercolours as well as acrylic , oils. If so what is your favorite medium to paint in ?
I like it, Michelle and like you am how just getting into watercolours ( instead of pastels). I find that it is difficult to get strong colours and contrasts.... view answer
