Michael York took up watercolour painting as a hobby in the early ‘90s and after attending continuing education courses, became professionally involved in 1995. He covers a wide range of subjects and enjoys the wet-into-wet technique which lends itself to the dramatic skies in his landscapes and marine paintings. He exhibits widely in Buckinghamshire and the surrounding area.
He has taught watercolour painting to groups on holiday in Spain and has taken courses for Buckinghamshire C C Adult Learning.
Michael runs the Clementi Art Group and the Chiltern Hills Art Society. He is a member of the SAA; the Beechwood Artists and the Roving Artists. He also gives demonstrations and workshops to art groups..
Michael tutors artsmart’s Wednesday afternoon Watercolour class at artsmart Studio, Beaconsfield.
