Local artist paints townscapes in oil and watercolour which focus on the effect of sunlight on scenes around North London
Philip Sanderson exhibits his townscapes of north London and beyond at Highgate Gallery this month.
Twice delayed due to the pandemic, Places People and Light features oils and watercolours at the gallery in South Grove which betray a fluidity and lightness of touch as well as beauty and substance.
The Highgate-based artist “endeavours to represent subjects in a loose and attractive way” and is particularly fascinated by the effect of sunlight and the subtly contrasting tones of light and dark it gives to a scene.
The people in his pictures, whether shoppers on Highgate High Street or children fishing on the Regent’s Canal represent life and movement.
