Len Mackin

I have been painting since 2009 when I decided that it would be fun to create my own art.

I picked up a brush, went to local classes and made a start. I paint in oils in a representational and mainly traditional style, using strong and bold colours. Still life is my main passion. I have painted a variety of subjects but also return to still life. I love working with ordinary objects such as ceramics and fruit, exploring their colour values, texture and form. Another good thing to consider is that they do not argue back and will sit quietly for weeks!
