Swing, Oil on canvas, 40cm x 40cm
Fawbert paints vibrant and colourful watercolours and oil paintings. Subjects include local landscapes, seascapes, portraits and children at play.
I am a painter working mostly in watercolour and more recently with oil on canvas. My technique is to build up thin, transparent layers in washes, painting on to wet paper or canvas to create a sense of movement, contrast, colour and light. My work is figurative and includes landscape and portraiture. At the moment, I am working on a series of paintings of children playing on a large rope swing at Bedgebury Pinetum. I also enjoy working in monochrome, using black, sepia and grey ink.
