Art by Tonywww.ArtPal.com/aerodyne1940
I paint landscapes - mostly but not exclusively British - in watercolour, people and animals both wild and tame in a variety of mixed media. Please note that the paintings I produce are usually signed using my first name, Robert, but throughout my life I've been 'Tony'. A case of split personality?
Not really. I blame my parents!
After qualifying I entered the teaching profession, eventually becoming the Head of the Faculty of Art, Design and Technology, Beverley Grammar School. I taught creative metalwork, graphics, product design, electronic product design, general product design, technical drawing, silversmithing and art.
I have continued to sketch and paint, mainly in watercolour. I have exhibited in shows in the East Riding of Yorkshire. I love landscape – the coastal areas of North Norfolk and Yorkshire, the Lake district especially – and I also enjoy portraying people and animals both domesticated and wild.
Other interests include writing (I am a published author of vintage radio books), photography, music, DIY.
