Nick Schlee - From drawing to painting

A painting of a country track with trees alongside.

The exhibition is designed to help visitors to discover how one artist looks at a landscape and how he transfers what he sees to paper and from there to an oil painting.

With the help of informative captions and some information panels describing the secrets of using colour, tone and line, the cumulative effect is a virtual ‘talk-through’ of the whole process of painting,

Twenty paintings are shown, each accompanied by one or two preparatory drawings. This enables the viewer to compare the sketch with the finished painting and with the help of the captions follow the artist’s thought process.

There is a short booklet available summarising the use of colour, tone and line together with suggestions as how to enlarge a sketch on to a big canvas.

There is also a handsome full colour book illustrating some thirty oil paintings including those in the exhibition and their preparatory drawings.
