Michael Long- Vibrant Colour in Landscapes, Acrylic Painting

Michael grew up in Bristol and later trained at the West of England College of Art.  He apprenticed as a designer and reproduction artist leading onto a teaching role at Brunel Technical College.  He later became the Senior Tutor in Graphic Design.  Michael has also worked as a freelance book designer and illustrator, most notably “Mammal Evolution”, published by the Natural History Museum in 1986.

The majority of Michael’s work has consisted of landscapes in oil and acrylics, often in a classical style.  In his more recent work he has concentrated on interpreting landscape slightly differently, drawing out its qualities of colour, form and texture to create bold, visually striking expressionist paintings.

Michael has exhibited widely throughout the West Country and his work is held in a number of collections, including the Charles Hill Marine Collection in Bristol.

Glyn Macey was born in Newlyn, Cornwall in 1969.

He completed his HND in Graphic Design at Falmouth School of Art in 1991.Since leaving college, he has lived in Penzance, Cornwall, his work developing in response to the unique environment of West Cornwall.
He also worked as a successful designer until 1998 when he 'retired' from designing in order to devote his time solely to painting. Glyn Macey's paintings can be seen in many collections world-wide and his design work is found in many major high street retailers. 2001 saw the publication worldwide of posters by The Art Group and limited edition silkscreens by CCA Galleries.
He can often be found roaming the harbours, moorland and coast of his native West Cornwall, sketchbook in hand recording the details of daily Cornish life and history. Such sketches are in turn used as the basis for the studio paintings.

Tim Wilmott , Water Colourist

Hello.  I am Tim Wilmot, based in Bristol UK and I'm a semi-professional watercolour artist.  I say semi-professional, in that I do have a full time job unrelated to painting, which does take up a fair bit of time as you can imagine!

So I've painted on and off all my life, and I would say almost exclusively in watercolour.  I love watercolour.   Most people say it's the most difficult painting medium to use - after all if you make a mistake, that's it.  Do the same in oils, and you can paint over it.  So it's the challenge I think with watercolour to pull a painting off, but also it's about some of the unique things you can do with watercolour that is difficult or impossible with say oils - e.g. try and do what they call 'wet in wet' in oils!  I also love the spontaneity of  watercolour and the speed at which you can work, often being able to complete a painting in under 2 hours.  Also the freshness you can get with watercolour, the attempt to make one brush stroke work just right and it communicates exactly what I want.
