Our artist of the month for March is John Damsell
John's first introduction to the world of art was when he was awarded a scholarship to the Croydon College of Art at the age of 15 in 1960, after that he worked in a London studio as a Junior Commercial Artist. Then in 1976 Specialising in retouching and illustration in a freelance capacity, John worked for himself for 25 years. 9 years ago he joined a local art society where he met new and like minded friends.
Now retired, John specialises in highly detailed, hand painted, property / portraits / and all domestic animals. working in Pastel, Watercolour, Oil, Acrylic, Coloured Pencils, & Graphite, but John says watercolour is his my first love. John also undertakes commissions.
The Society is a small group of amateur artists living and working in and around the Northamptonshire area.
We meet weekly throughout the year on each Thursday evening in Sawpits Centre, Towcester.
