Tony Clegg

Tony Clegg After taking early retirement in 1995 Tony started painting as a pastime following a career in commerce with a large multinational company. He felt some frustration after many years of endeavour having little tangible evidence to show for it and as a result started painting.

Whilst living in Lincolnshire, early tuition in water-colour and life drawing was pursued through the local College in Grantham, followed by instruction from a well known Lincolnshire artist, Janet Whittle SWA,SBA,SFP.

After moving to New Milton in 2001 he continued instruction from artist Daphne Ellman SWA and has extended his interest into Acrylic work. He became a member of several local art groups  exhibiting regularly in their exhibitions and was judged "best watercolour" in the Hengist Group exhibition 2005 and has exhibited locally in open exhibitions at the St. Barbe Museum, Lymington, with "ArtCare" at Salisbury Hospital, Hampshire Arts Week and Crafts Ancient and Modern in Christchurch Priory 2006.

Besides conventional watercolour, he represents familliar locations in the coastline in a semi-abstract way with bright contemporary images, often in vertical format, creating an unusual application of watercolour exploiting its transparancy but with depth of colour.
