Artist Demonstrations at Lovelys

Oil Painting With Darren Lewis

Saturday 8th July 11am - 3pm

Oil Painting With Darren Lewis

Margate based oil painter Darren Lewis will be demonstrating how he creates his stunning light filled seascapes, where sky meets sea and sand, using Windsor & Newton Artists Oil paints.

Over recent years, Darren's focus has been to capture the varied light, atmosphere and climate of Thanet’s coastlines but more recently, a further resolution on depicting Margate Harbour and its surrounding areas has become a growing obsession. Darren is drawn to the light and colour of the sky, the cloud formations, the shimmer of light on water, the mood and sense of place. His work is generally oil on canvas or board but sometimes Darren experiments with mixed media exploring the unknown combinations of varied materials.
