Anthony Nield

Watercolour, Pencils, Line & Wash
Landscape, Cottages, Village Scenes

Anthony has painted in a number of locations, including North and South America, Bermuda and the Caribbean. The variety of subject matter was a tremendous inspiration for Anthony’s work.

Whilst in Bermuda Anthony exhibited quarterly in juried exhibitions with the Bermuda Society of Arts, whilst selling works in galleries in Hamilton.

In his first exhibition in Bermuda two of his paintings were awarded Presidents choice out of 293-juried works by 73 local and international artists. The Masterworks Foundation Gallery was the recipient of those paintings. The mission of this gallery is to collect visual art which depict Bermuda by both overseas and Bermudian Artists. Some renowned artists who have works in the collection include Winslow Homer, Georgia O’Keeff and Albert Gleizis.

Since his return to the UK Anthony has featured in a number of magazines, and produced limited edition prints for the MOD, Christmas Cards and local Kent scenes. He is a member of Sevenoaks Art Club, and has tutored to a number of Kent art clubs and for Kent County Council. He is a regular contributor to the Leisure painter magazine, writing instructional pieces accompanied by images at various stages of completion.

Anthony now demonstrates, and teaches watercolour painting on cruise ships during his summer holidays.

Classes and Workshops

Both classes and workshops will be suitable for beginners and participants with more experience. Guidance and demonstration will be given, on how to get the best and most interesting composition from your painting. You will see the development of a painting from a pre sketched drawing through to the finished piece. You will receive guidance on such techniques as dry brush, glazing, lifting out, washes, ghost washes, wet in wet and wet on dry. Paint along to demonstrations that may include themes such as winter woodland scenes, Caribbean Island seascapes. But more importantly the sessions will be light in mood, full of conversation and ultimately a joyful and fun experience. I also offer classes in pen and ink and pen and wash. Sketching and perspective

Based in Kent I am available for demonstrations in the evenings and at weekends in Kent and surrounding counties.
