Friday 16th February - John Tookey, Coastal Scene in Watercolour

John works in all mediums and tries to capture the essence of the subject rather than a very topographical likeness. He will frequently work on-site or from sketches completed at the scene, the effects of light and atmosphere on a subject particularly interest him. John Tookey was trained in Graphic Design and Fine Art at the Sir John Cass School of Art, London during the sixties when lecturers included David Graham, Edward Hall and Vivian Pitchforth. He has exhibited with the Royal Institute of Watercolourists; The Royal Oil Institute; The West of England Academy, The New English Art Club and the Pastel Society, of which he has been a member since 1982.
