Yesterday I had the pleasure of attending the official opening of Philip Gray’s new series of landscapes at Whitewall Galleries in Bath, where he also did a painting demonstration.

I would recommend having a look at his website. His work is incredible; the atmospheric, Romantic qualities and vivid colours combine to create art which I really admire, and is thematically similar to my own.

His demo lasted approximately 15 minutes and, in that time, he created a painting of a diver exploring coral reefs. It was useful to observe his techniques, and the way he allows the behaviour of the paint to take control of the final appearance.

The paintings are on display at the gallery (17 New Bond Street, Bath) until 10th September.
