Roger Dellar PS RI ROI

Roger Dellar, Ladies-Day-Royal-Ascot

 

Roger Dellar PS RI ROI will be working in the gallery from 12pm to 4pm, demonstrating his techniques for pastel painting.

Roger enjoyment of painting is the process rather than the end result. It is about finding the subject and letting it emerge. He enjoys the surface created. He wants the painting to read from a distance as reality, but close up to be a series of marks. With composition, he likes this to emerge by looking for the spatial qualities of one shape creating an imbalance, and then being resolved by another. He likes to work with a limited palette adding a few brights for emphasis.
