Biography


Summary
 
Alan Pickering is an artist located in Perth, Western Australia and he works from direct observation on plein air studies and larger pieces as studio works. He draws his inspiration and ideas from the natural and built environment around Perth, Fremantle, and country Western Australia as well as from his travels overseas. Alan creates landscapes, streetscapes and marine paintings in an impressionistic representational style. His mediums include Oils, Acrylics, Watercolours, and Pen and Wash.
 
Alan can also be followed on Facebook, where he is an active member of the "Perth Plein Air  Painters" Facebook group. As part of his plein air interest he also crafts outdoor painting equipment which includes pochade boxes; easel mounted palettes; folding palettes; and panel carriers.
 
Background
 
Alan started art in 2007 after his children grew old enough to move out and attend University. Alan is semi-retired after a career as an Engineer, IT Manager, and Management Consultant to IT Departments. Nowadays he paints several times each week, and enjoys the challenges in sharing the creative and analytical work parts of his lifestyle.
 
His art practice has developed from being primarily self-taught and self educated from extensive reading, with supplementary tuition from community art centres and selected leading Australian artists. He has traveled overseas to paint and study and has painted in France, Italy, England, Ireland, the Greek Islands, Germany, and the Czech Republic.
 
Alan's work is in private collections in Australia, Germany, and the Netherlands.
