Basé sur le même concept que les mosaïques ou les activités de peinture par numéro, le diamond painting est un loisir créatif consistant à placer de minuscules "diamants" colorés sur une image imprimée pour créer un tableau mosaïque.
Frequently Bought Together
Steve grew up in Cornwall and the coast has always been a huge influence and inspiration to him. He was fortunate enough to have Cornish Painter John Piper as his art teacher at school and through him gained a place at Falmouth School of Art in 1987.
He then went on to spend over a decade in the advertising and design industry, working in London and Amsterdam, before returning to the coast in 2003, to Dorset.
As an artist Steve has a recurring interest in coastal landscapes and marine scenes, and his paintings often convey a sense of anticipation at spending the day at the beach.
A great influence on Steve’s work has been the artwork associated with travel posters from the 1920’s and 1930’s where detail is kept to a minimum, and the use of flat colour and strong shapes created by light and shadow.
Another motivating factor for his art is colour – choosing to use a limited palette of desaturated, earthy hues.
