Plein air painting in oil
Philip Clayton was born in Wiltshire (1960) and trained at Central St, Martins, London. He has combined his life as a painter with a long career in art education, and until recently was Head of Art at Yeovil college in Somerset. Philip has exhibited regularly in London, the South West and the former Soviet Union.
Painting in a direct and spontaneous manner, verging towards abstraction, his work is an immediate response to the visual world.
“The most important thing is to be able to relate instinctively to ones surroundings and by working directly in front of the subject in all weathers makes for the perfect challenge. My subject matter is usually landscape or buildings, the quiet kind, the kind you often miss, but by looking, and looking again, the true beauty of an ordinary scene evolves during the process of painting. I am a colourist that’s what it is all about for me, colour and marks and recording the essence of what may or may not be there tomorrow.”
