BIO UPDATE! AND BRAGGING RIGHTS!??
Here is a quick update to my profile. Although window cleaning is still what pays the bills, i feel pleased with the successes I've achieved in the short period of time since joining Painters Online and first writing my bio, so I would like to share them with you. Along with having a number of commissioned portraits I have had sales in a variety of different open Exhibitions. I exhibited in the 2017 and the 2018 Royal Society of Oil painters (ROI) annual exhibition at the prestigious Mall Galleries and was pre selected for both the 2017 Royal Society of Marine artists and the 2018 Royal Society of portrait painters. I was also one of 218 that made it into the final stages of the BP awards 2017 out of the 2560 international artists that applied, unfortunately i wasn't one of the 54 chosen for Exhibition, but Hey-Ho maybe another year. I have had work published in both The Artist magazine and The Leisure Painter along with being invited to write a couple of online articles for painters online. I have had work in the 2017 and 2018 Artist category for the Patchings Exhibition and I have also been excepted into the Cambridge drawing Society as well as being an active member of the Hertford art Society! Happy painting! ________________________
My name is Craig Allan Lee and I am a self employed window cleaner, with a real passion for painting, Drawing and Sketching. Although Window cleaning is what pays the Bills I have always drawn and recently decided to show and possibly dare I say it even sell my artwork.
My greatest achievement was to convince my wife to marry me and have three amazing children.
I paint in watercolour ( mainly when life drawing for speed! ) and in oils. My oils tend tobe Alla prima as I like the loose spontaneity of the style, also because I am quite inpatient and can lose interest quickly.
