Artist Statement
for Tony Stubbs
Tony StubbsRapidly leaving 65 behind
Working part time as lecturer(electronic engineering), but try to keep my hand in.
No real formal training , but copious encouragement by inspiring art teacher has has kept me motivated even after over forty years!
I like to work in many mediums, acrylic, watercolour, pastel, ink, pencil, coloured pencil, charcoal etc and sometimes experiment with mixing 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.

I am loving pastels as a medium but I am frustrated that this portrait among other work has been spoiled by using fixative. Even the best stuff tends to darken...
Ian, I remember this photo from when it first came out in National Geographic. You've captured it very well! I'll admit that I've never liked this image... view answer
