Anthony Giles original art
Many of Anthony Giles’ paintings are started ‘plein air’, even the larger canvasses are often started on a windy beach or marsh in Kent and then taken back to the studio where they are ‘worked-up’, over several months, into a finished painting, as a landscape painter he spends much of his time looking at every colour, shadow and reflection of the world around him and then transfer that moment onto canvas.
Somehow a rain soaked canvas, that has sand and grass blown into it, holds onto some of the magic of the moment and that is exactly what Anthony wants from his work. The essence of that moment in Nature when he’s totally absorbed in capturing the image that surrounds him.
