Simon Young Art

In spite of an enthusiasm for oils and watercolours, Simon joined the Army. Being a 'soldier and painter' worked with many subjects to hand. Deployments provided interesting painting opportunities as well as opportunities to exhibit. Travel made oil painting awkward, so sketching and painting in watercolour became the norm stimulating interest in sketching, light, colour, form and perspective. Now time exists to explore what works and what doesn't with this exciting and challenging medium. He enjoys working to commission encouraging clients to get involved with the development of their painting; he also likes visiting art groups to run a day or half day workshops.
