Tony Blomme


He started with drawing. Making quick and casual sketches or drawings, they evolved into very meticulously finished drawings. Around 1992 he started experimenting with watercolours, mostly because he missed colours in his drawings. Almost immediately he discovered a whole set of new ideas and techniques to use in his work. The watercolour sketches became paintings. Although the possibilities with canvas were obviously greater then with watercolour, he still wanted to find a new technique. He started working with oil paint to find a new form of expression. It’s inspiring to see how Tony started his journey in search of the ideal expression form for him. The oil paint gives Tony’s the opportunity to work with bigger canvases. He finds inspiration in his travels. He takes pictures, and after a certain time has gone by he takes up his collection pictures and starts making paintings of them.
