Tim Hughes (Treasurer)
Tim has enjoyed the pleasure of drawing and painting for many years now. Tim’s specialist medium is really watercolour with its beauty and transparency. However, for Tim pastel has a vibrancy and depth of colour, which no other medium seems to possess. Pastel is also so instant and doesn't have the problems of colour‑mixing as does paint.
Whatever the medium employed he emphasises the importance of good drawing discipline, followed by strong composition and then an understanding of colour. Light and atmosphere are key points too his paintings whilst trying to evoke a sense of mystery and delight for the viewer.
As regards subject matter Tim is happy drawing architecture and subjects, which require a mechanical ability.
