Brian Tovey

Brian attended Kings Heath Horticultural College where he gained a thorough training in the painting of botanical subjects. This can be seen in the particularly fine way he paints in which his work shows his understanding of the countryside, illustrating the seasonal changes in colours, shade, depth and feeling.

During the 1980's Brian was encouraged by Tony Priest of the Arden Gallery to work on larger oils. The one show here is a typical example and took Brian 3 months to complete.
