Demonstration by Anthony Neild

Line and wash

I have painted in watercolours for many years,

and started to take it more seriously whilst working in Bermuda.

Watercolour seemed the ideal medium

to capture the natural beauty of the Island.

More recently I have been working in pen and ink

and for some reason I have found

I have more patience with this medium

than either watercolour or oil paints.

 

Whilst in Bermuda I exhibited with the Bermuda arts society.

In my first show, two of my paintings were selected

as Presidents choice by the society themselves,

and were purchased and donated to The Masterworks Foundation Gallery.

My Life in Illustration.

Drawing was the first thing I remember doing

and since then I haven’t stopped drawing and

painting the things and subjects that excite me.

I’ve worked on numerous books,

posters and adverts and in 1991

won the Times Ed senior book award

for ‘An Egyptian Pyramid’.

I specialise in figurative work,

cutaways, historical reconstructions,

automotive, aviation,

space and maritime subjects,

as well as book design, layouts,

storyboards, cartoons and T shirt design.
