Artist Profile

Anton Bradburn

Bio

I am an enthusiastic amateur botanical artist. I have been painting in watercolour for about 12 years. I am motivated by the seemingly endless variations of colour, form, texture, movement, scent and sound you experience with plants. I enjoy trying to capture something of these qualities and represent them in my drawings and paintings.

I care about accuracy, control of my watercolours and about producing aesthetically satisfying paintings. I take inspiration from flowers, fruits and vegetables. I have attended numerous botanical workshops and courses and have a Diploma in botanical painting.

I use a dry brush technique. I rarely resort to using washes. This puts me in a minority as wet-in-wet and wet-on-dry are the more popular approaches to painting with watercolour. I like dry brush because it allows me to control my pigments. I work using loups with variable magnification, which enable me to see every brush stoke as I lay it onto my support.

I am a retired university lecturer and moved to Sherborne in the summer of 2015 and love living here. I recently set up a blog explaining how I work and am amazed at the number of visits to it. I anticipated very little interest.
