Tony Homer works with drawings and paintings completed on location to develop ideas that express his relationship with the environment. These locations are repeatedly visited until sufficient information is recorded in sketchbooks and colour studies. Landscapes, seascapes and architecture form the main focus of his work.
He likes overlaying marks and workings in texture and pattern on the surface of the painting. Compositions are often changed or amended to achieve the feel of a place.
Tony tries to achieve a subtle shift from opaqueness to transparency. In a painting he likes to explore flatness, depth and texture without losing the identity of a location.
