DEMONSTRATIONS WORKSHOPS EXHIBITIONS
PAINTING AFTERNOONS LOCATION DAYS TRIPS
Vic Court

My love of painting started with oils and has progressed to acrylics and alkyd oil paints. I have spent recent years learning how to give a strength to acrylic paintings similar to that achieved with oils, enjoying the glazing and layering that can be quickly created with acrylics and trying to develop a painterly style.

I have painted since my teenage days and throughout my working life, which never involved the arts - being a highly technical one in the Military and Industry. Since leaving that I worked part time for Artcare at Salisbury Hospital for a couple of years and now fit painting in around my other commitments. Like most amateur artists I have learnt to paint by reading books and watching demonstrations. I have found the work of James Horton and Bob Rohm to be very stimulating and help me avoid creating too much realism in my work.

Despite some long gaps in production for work reasons, I have sold and exhibited some paintings over the years, and occasionally been given commissions - usually from a favourite photograph of a subject that meant something special to the customer. I have found this to be the most demanding for example when asked to paint a train crossing a river I was given several different shots of the engine so I could understand the working parts and driving mechanisms.
I have joined RAS to benefit from some professional demonstrations and meet other like minds.
My current focus is on maritime subjects and beach art and I have a web site at:
