Ally Tate, Dorset Member Since December 2009 Artist Statement Early 2008 I began sketching again after a considerable interval, and a little encouragement from friends.
This fired up both the interest and skill. Over the year my skills have developed.
I started selling work to friends and family as well as through online galleries and contacts made through face book.
I have undertaken a number of successful commissions and have a growing catalogue of originals for sale.
I am currently planning my first exhibit.
The subject matter I tackle is varied however I prefer animal pictures (wildlife and pets), and hope to eventually specialize in equestrian work. I have also some landscapes of local interest in my collection Examples can be seen on my website.
My preferred media is pencil I also work with pastel and more recently watercolour.
I have a realistic style with often only minimal background, sufficient to provide the subject with context or perspective.
I consider myself very much a work in progress and still experiment with media and techniques. Work is posted fairly regularly on my own site where there is also an on the easel feature.
