Brian started painting as a 14 year old after a visit to the Bendigo Art Gallery.
His goal is to demonstrate his interpretation of everyday life with a backdrop in nature. Fishermen at the pier, yachts racing on the bay and buildings of significance. Subjects are selected on purely what makes him feel good and what he sees around him "there is beauty in the everyday view".
Brian loves watercolour for the atmospheric effects. He uses acrylics for more detailed work and the versatility of more intense colours allows him to explore his topic with vigor. Watercolour is his favourite medium, "I love the way the watercolour paint flows ontot he paper, I love the movement if produces and I love the traditional appeal of waercolours"
