Keith Hornblower

Following a very successful 30-odd year career as an architectural

illustrator (a Fellow of the Society of Architectural Illustration) Keith

turned to a much looser, expressive approach with his own work in

watercolour finding immediate success with magazine articles,

international exhibitions and is a regular exhibitor with the Royal

Institute of Painters in Watercolour at the Mall Galleries, London.

His approach is dynamic and spontaneous, applying paint at speed,

moving and adjusting washes as he progresses. He believes the pursuit

of perfection is a fool's errand. It cannot be achieved by mere mortals

and it's the imperfections that make art interesting and personal,

revealing the artist, warts and all.

Tonal values are very important to him ensuring there is sufficient light and shade in his pictures. He uses colours for

dramatic effect rather than trying to reproduce them literally, thinking mainly in terms of warm and cool, and often

working with a simple triad of primary or secondary colours. He finds watercolour a medium of endless possibilities and

constantly explores different ways of using this exciting medium.

His spontaneous style, coupled with humour and a passion for the medium has won him many followers over the years

and his demonstration sessions and workshops are always in demand.
