Olney on Canvas : Philip Compton Farquharson
August 1 @ 10:30 am - August 30 @ 4:30 pmFree
Philip Compton Farquharson
Philip comes from an Art Historical background, and these studies, combined with his love of travel, have influenced his paintings both in subject-matter and style. For the current exhibit, ‘Olney on Canvas’, he has focussed on street scenes of primarily commercial properties in Olney and Yardley Hastings, two places with which he has a close affinity.
Street scenes and landscapes are his favourite subjects. He paints oil on canvass, or oil on recycled cardboard, where plastic plant labels are used instead of a brush, creating an impasto style.
He has had paintings shortlisted by the Royal Institute of Oil Painters, The Pastel Society, the Royal Society of Portrait Painters, and has exhibited at the Royal College of Art through the National Open Art Competition. F
