Stephen Wright – “The Art of Travel”

Stephen will be presenting his first solo exhibition of his watercolours at Tussock Upstairs Gallery

“Travelling is a wonderful experience, it broadens the mind, you learn so much and the memories are indelible.  Holiday travelling has in the past been almost my only opportunity to paint – free of distractions and with plenty of time available. Over recent years I have found painting ‘en plein air’ particularly challenging and satisfying.

The travel has had an added purpose and through the people I’ve met, the experiences are even more interesting. There is nothing like spending 3-4hours examining a scene in detail, surrounded by a crowd, to truly understand the location. This exhibition contains the watercolours I have produced in my travels in Australia, Europe and Asia over the last few years.”
