Fred Bennett - Profile

I draw and paint and I have in the main adopted a traditional and realist approach for my art. However,I do not feel limited to any one approach and admire the work of a wide range of artists. I draw both figure and portrait with several local societies. Much of my drawing has been done at Chertsey Artists and through them I contacted and joined Weybridge Art Society. I paint mostly in oils and have sought to extend my skills by attending various courses at The Sarum Studio,Heatherleys,The Art Academy and elsewhere. Some of my work,less formal, is in acrylic.When painting my subject matter is usually still-life(typically flowers),portraits and city-scapes. The still-lifes can be either traditional or poster like. I have also undertaken some work in clay doing both portrait busts and painted pottery.
