Roger Dellar RI PS ROI working in the gallery

Roger Dellar RI PS ROI will be demonstrating his pastel technique in the gallery and answering questions.

Roger's enjoyment of painting is the process rather than the end result. It is about finding the subject and letting it emerge. 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.
