    Art Description:

    An underrated fish that on close inspection has beautiful markings of speckled jeweled colours.

    I have used painting techniques to reflect the vibrancy and markings of this beautiful small fish with layers of acrylic paints, acrylic mediums and transparent glazes.  

    On close inspection, this gives the fish painting a more life-like feel and the depth of its skin scales and colours. The fish will be spot varnished on a matt black background to give it even more vibrancy.

    Medium Used: Oil on Wood Panel

    Simon Royer | United Kingdom

    Simon Royer is an artist with a love of natural history and the environment. Self taught he works in a variety of media, including oils, acrylic paints and sculpture.

    From the earliest fine art paintings depicting accurately realistic representations of birds, to the ethereal, atmospheric quality of the beach scenes, all works depict the almost physical, tactile relationship we have with our world. More often than not Royer’s works contain a story, whether it be an illustration of the Darwinian concept of survival, a visual exploration of the behavioural habits of certain species or a critique of mankind’s depletion of the planet’s natural resources, his interest and concern with the environment is overriding. Royer’s intuitive portrayal of his subject matter and the striking vitality apparent in all his artworks has brought him many admirers and collectors.

    Royer has had solo exhibitions in London, Denver and Brighton and has works in both private and corporate collections worldwide. He has exhibited at Royal Society of Marine Artists (RSMA) and the Royal Society of Oil Painters (ROI) Annual Exhibitions at the Mall Galleries in London. In 2013 he was finalist in the BBC Wildlife Art Competition and in 2014 he exhibited at the prestigious David Shepherd Wildlife Art Exhibition.
