Mixed Media by Angus McDonald
I like to produce paintings that look fantastic from a distance, but as you get closer and closer you are delighted by more and more detail being revealed. This is not to say that I am after photo-realism, as much pleasure can be gained by appreciating the artists brush strokes.
Such intricacy means that it can take an hour or more for me to pait an area the size of a small postage stamp. Most of the time I use a number 1 brush. I may occassionally use a number 2 for washes, and even more rarely will I reach for a 1/2" flat brush to block backgrounds in solid colours. All this means is it can take four months to complete a painting.
I pretty much paint whatever inspires me, from flora to fauna, to aircraft and anything slighlty quirky in a thought provoking way.
I have lived locally for over thirty years, and am now based in Finchhampstead North, some two miles south of Wokingham.
