GARY JEFFREY - HEAT 4 WINNER
Gary has worked in Children's publishing and retail and in 2015
after a long break has got back into his art making.
Congratulations on winning Heat 4 of Sky Arts Landscape Artist
of the Year 2019! What was the experience like painting at
A joyous one! I approached the Heat determined to enjoy
both the programme-making, and art challenge aspects
of the day to the full.
It helped that I had been on the show before (in 2016)
and knew what to expect.
This time I was able to keep my nervous energy to a pleasant,
steady hum and actually function effectively, and above all - have fun!
The judges loved your use of colour in your depiction of Hestmonceux Castle,
could you talk us through your use of colour and the choices you
make with your palette?
In planning for the Heat I had pondered using complementary (or opposite)
colour to block out my painting for three reasons:
Working en plein air deliberately painting in opposites is such fun. To me it feels a little bit transgressive, naughty even, and turns the act of seeing colour into a game!
For years my basic acrylics palette has been:
A couple of bright greens/viridian hue/crimson/Prussian blue/ultramarine/cerulean hue/bright blue/ochre/cad yellow med/cad yellow light/cad red med and white
For the Heat I added:
Colbalt blue deep/cerulean (chromium)/cad red light
And ditched Prussian, ultramarine, and cad red med because
I wanted the castle to have “lift”
Do you have any particular brands that you tend to return to with your paint?
My preferred acrylics are
Liquitex Heavy Body and Winsor & Newton Artists quality with a large tub of Student Titanium white (any brand!)
