who is grace bailey?

Once upon a time, I was a watercolour painter for the sheer love of it. I adored how watercolour takes its own path if you let it! Mix pigment with water and it flows and not always how you expect…..

Then I went off to uni and got a Masters in realist oil portraiture. Despite moving to oils, I used the watercolour technique of loads of medium (turps) and let the paint take its own way!

Years later I discovered the immediacy of acrylics!

And then I began painting live. A lot. In front of an audience with a limited time span.

Hundreds of times…..

Which meant make it quick, baby! It developed my style into a much quicker application than ever before, creating a wonderful looseness and life.

As an artist, It felt like a coming of age of style after so many years of painting realistically.

I use large brushes, loads of water and let the pigment take it’s own path, up to a point. But I still use the realist focus on eyes to ground the works, whether they are people portraits or bird and animal portraits. (My bird and animal paintings are portraits of a personality trait that people have)…..

The artsy language defines that as….. metaphors for the human condition…..
