November – Nigel Overton
Subject: Drawing and Painting Flowers
Medium: Watercolour Pencil
Nigel was born in Doncaster in 1952, He has an extensive background in the Arts field, including a BA in Fine Art Painting and Drawing and was formerly the Head of Art & Design at Benton Park School in Leeds.
He has worked with a wide range of different media and techniques but has always maintained his belief in the importance of drawing both within his own work and his teaching of Art and Design.
Nigel believes that anyone can learn to draw and paint given the proper tuition. It is more to do with careful observation and a basic understanding of technique rather than just natural talent.
