Tony Williams SWAc, is a professional artist who lives and works in rural Devon and is an Academician of the South West Academy of Fine and Applied Arts.
Tony’s oil paintings are instantly recognisable and bear all the hallmarks of a master technician. Sometimes paintings are apparently dashed off with sweeping strokes of bravura, not with the blind faith of some lesser painters, but with the deft application of an experienced artist who really knows what the outcome will be. Paint is wiped off with a rag here and there on some of his paintings, and left ‘as is’, again with the touch of a master of the oil medium. Other paintings are much more resolved and ‘tighter’, but all have a unique and almost mesmerising, painterly quality to them.
Tony exhibits widely in the South West, but we are delighted to represent him here in deepest Rutland to a wider audience.
