Tom Rickman is one of the Tutor's on our weekly Life Drawing Evening Sessions every Wednesday from 7pm till 9pm.
For some time now Tom has been interested in the minimal qualities of the sea and sky, using the horizon as a focal point of the picture. Often paintings take as their subject the specific time or moment of twilight.
“At the end of the day there is a progression of movements where light/colour is compressed above the horizon as it moves towards night. This resonant, sometimes sublime time, marks a poignant moment of the day.”
Tom's paintings have included extensive trips around Italy, the U.S.A. and the South West of England and in particular Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.
