Mike Jeffries

“My main love is watercolours and I now wish that I had taken it up many years earlier. I paint what I see and I like busy scenes and the challenge of capturing movement and activity using the full spectrum of tonal values. I seldom mess around with the compositions as some artists do. I think you need to address this at the outset when you are deciding what to paint and from what view point. I am inspired by the work of Seago and Wesson but mainly by the living artist, John Yardley and I have joined him for a week at Dedham near Colchester for the last several years. He demonstrates rather than teaches but if my training taught me anything it was how to be observant and I have learned a great deal from watching him paint and going to develop my own style.”
