Unison Colour Associate Artist

Unison Colour welcomes Stuart Walton as an Associate Artist

Having retired from my post of Consultant Gynaecologist in 2006, I achieved my longstanding and long overdue ambition of completing an A level in Fine Art. Throughout my career I have continued to paint and draw and came upon pastels about 35 years ago, initially as a compact and easy medium to carry on holiday. However it didn’t take long to establish it as my preferred medium.

I paint landscapes and portraiture and have completed a number of commissions. The latest commissions were providing art work for the Howick Church (the resting place of Earl Grey) Kneeler Project and also a series of industrial Teesside landscapes for my former hospital. Having tried many brands of pastel, I find the Unison colour range unmistakably extensive and well suited to the North Northumberland landscapes and coast where I live. Added to this the texture of the pastels combines a softness and the right amount of ‘chalkiness’ making application easy and fluid.

A Figurative Approach to Abstraction

Although I am primarily a figurative artist, I have had an admiration and fondness for Abstract art. The main problem, and I would think not uncommon amongst figurative artists, is that I have had great trouble producing a piece of Abstract Art with which I am entirely happy.
