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 works both from life and in the studio, and uses one of the following: oil, pastel, watercolour or gouache. He uses a sketchbook for gaining the information if he is out and wishing to travel light. This can be my first means of understanding the subject. A large proportion of his work is created by painting a series of small oils on location and developing them later into larger, more considered pieces. Then in the studio, when working for an exhibition, Roger will work on several pieces in order not to become too precious, and thereby more critical. In the studio he often uses sketches and photography to gain his first idea, and not to copy but to interpret.
