Roger Dellar RI PS ROI working in the gallery
Roger Dellar RI PS ROI will be demonstrating his watercolour 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 enjoys the surface created, the brushwork and the differences between lean & fat paint. 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.
