Simon Watkins

I was born in London in 1988.  On leaving school in 2006 I went to Florence for one year to study drawing under the American painter Charles H. Cecil.  A degree in History of Art at the University of York followed, where I wrote my dissertation on portraiture in eighteenth century Britain.   I then returned to Florence to continue studying painting for a further two years.  During this time I was invited to become a teaching assistant, instructing on two intensive month-long drawing courses in July 2011 and 2012.  Since then I have been working from my studio in London, finding my own direction from this relatively academic foundation. I also teach drawing and painting from life at the London Atelier of Representational Art

I have always been drawn to the tradition of naturalistic oil painting, and the study I have pursued has been with that aim in mind.  Working entirely from life, one looks and responds to nature slowly, creating an image that is the result of sustained observation, seizing on the essential character and life of the subject.
