Focus on mike bernard artist

Mike Bernard (born 1957) is an English painter. His highly textured semi-abstract paintings are often executed in mixed media incorporating collage and acrylics; he also brings an experimental approach to watercolour and oils. Regular subjects include coastal and street scenes in the English West Country and Italy. "What attracts me most is the pattern of buildings, boats and similar features in a scene. I build a painting by putting in blocks of colour to develop a pattern which is pleasing to my eye in colours which are harmonious, bringing in feelings of spontaneity, freshness and freedom."
