Phil Tetlow Dip A.D (Hons) A.T.C.
Tuesday 18th March - Sunday 30th March 2014 Travelling Light
Graduated in Fine Art at Sheffield College of Art before teaching in Yorkshire and Lincolnshire. Now painting and exhibiting both locally and in other parts of the country.
My common theme is light and its effect on the world we live in, landscape, buildings, people. I love the huge open skies and the sudden seasonal changes. I want to capture that instant play of light on the landscape, the contrasting tones, the dapples and reflections. I generally work in acrylics and often start with a dark canvas and work lighter tone on tone until, after building up the layers, the finished painting emerges. I am one of that generation of painters who were trained in a traditional way and acknowledge the influence of Paul Henry, Alfred Munnings and the Impressionists on my work. I also accept commissions for portraits and other subjects.
