Philip Boville - Fire and Light in acrylic

Industrial artist Philip Boville gave a demonstration on how to paint the inside of the Mallard train at the latest York Art Society meeting. Taking inspiration from a photograph, he was able to capture the ‘fire and light’ from the steam train and all the industrial aspects of the train therein. 

Philip traditionally used to paint all the fine details in a photorealistic style with acrylic and oil, however, as his work has grown over the years, he has understood the importance of a more impressionistic style of painting to give more of a dramatic effect. 

Members certainly appreciated the time that Philip gave to impart his knowledge and share his remarkable skill.
