Chris Forsey

Chris Forsey has exhibted on numerous occasions with the Royal Watercolour Society and the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour. He is a tutor of painting and runs his own watercolour classes in Surrey and Sussex and in the Greek Islands. He endeavours to re-appraise his style and technique on a regular basis and this has led him towards a mixed-media approach to his work, combining watercolour, acrylic, pastel and gouache. Chris is exhilarated by colour and surface and enjoys creating textured layers of dry-brushed colour that allow hints of complementary hue to glow through, thus creating an exciting surface of scattered, broken colour. He specialises in landscape subjects, exploring the themes of man-made alongside the organic: buildings by water; structure emerging from a rocky cliff, sometimes with figures contributing to this theme, inhabiting the middle ground between buidings and the wildness of nature. Chris is inspired by downland, coastal scenes of the Uk and the Mediternean, cafe life and townscapes. Chris was awarded the prestigious F DONALD BLAKE AWARD for a contemporary watercolour by the LINCOLN JOYCE gallery in 2006 at the RI spring exhibition and also THE MATT BRUCE MEMORIAL AWARD for light and colour at the 2007 RI exhibition
