Gloucester Artist Alex Wallace

 

For many years art has been a sometime hobby fitted around the normal busy lifestyle of work and kids etc.  Now I am retired I can devote all my spare time to painting, drawing and sculpture.

I use a variety of  mediums but lately I have concentrated on Pastel painting and Watercolour pencil. This gives a variety of texture, detail and brilliance of colour.

Sculpture is another aspect of my art. Mainly figurative and modelled in clay, the pieces are then fired in my own kiln. The final result is glazed, painted with acrylics or coated with bronze (or other metallic) resin.

I have sold paintings at the Cheltenham Open Air Exhibition and the Cotswold Art Exhibition. I am a member of the Cheltenham Art Club and a Committee member of Cheltenham Open Air.
