Watercolour Paintings by Tony Slater


Tony Slater

Tony was born in 1942 and lives in Nottinghamshire, England with his wife Doreen. He has a son Glenn and daughter-in-law Judith and two grandchildren, Emma and Andrew.

Tony is the official UK demonstrator for Sennelier Extra Fine Watercolours and Isabey and Raphael Brushes.

He is a Studio Associate of the Trevor Waugh Studio and a Professional Associate of the Society for All Artists. He is also a founder member and past chairman of The Kirby Bellars Group of Artists based near Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire.

Tony began painting in the 1970’s and, apart from seeking instruction from those artists whose work he admires, he is completely self taught.

It is Tony's great love of, and expertise in, painting watercolour, together with his communication skills, that has led him into the teaching of watercolour. In the last eighteen years he has acquired an enviable reputation in this field, proving himself able to pass on not only the basics of painting but his own techniques, hints and tips in a way that gives confidence to beginners, and for those with some experience, can make a reasonable painting good, and a good painting great.

He regularly runs painting holidays, workshops, teaches painting courses and demonstrates at the annual Patchings Art Festival in Nottinghamshire. His aim is always to promote confidence, increase skill, but - and this is of prime importance to him - also to help his students enjoy their painting.

Tony also exhibits regularly, his paintings now forming part of collections in many countries of the world. His work has featured in International Artist Magazine, while Leisure Painter commission and publish articles by him.



"Dear........All those I spoke to yesterday agreed that the demo was excellent. I was most impressed by his unusual technique - he must have a quite exceptional eye! He also has a wonderful gift for explaining what he was doing: His dry humour made sure no-one nodded off!
Please pass on our thanks to Tony, we really did appreciate all the trouble he took to make it a memorable day. Yours.........G....."
