About the artist:
Phil Westwood has spent most of his working life as an illustrator and a graphic designer. After leaving work as a lecturer he decided to return to his first love as a painter particularly in watercolor.
” I decided to join the Watercolor Society, because I felt that I didn’t want to continue to work in isolation, and instead hopefully be stimulated and inspired by the work of the other artist who were members”.
Phil has work in many private collections which include pastels oils, as well as watercolors. Over the last few years he has frequently visited the Algarve in Portugal and began to paint the landscapes there The beauty of the landscape there and the intensity of the colors he has said has added an new vitality and dimension to his work which he is in the process of working on with the view to holding an exhibition next year.
