Simon Birtall: "Painting in oils or acrylics, I seek to imbue my work with a sense of spontaneity. I take inspiration from any source, be it a designated piece of ‘art’ or otherwise, traditional or modern. My painting technique is thus under constant development.

My recent work concentrates on the study of still life subjects from life, and embraces experiments in the use of alternative surfaces to canvas such as recycled packaging. Colour theory is fundamental to my working process; I therefore favour subjects that offer the opportunity to enjoy explorations of colour.

Since 2002 I have run a successful ‘Portraits from Photographs’ service, painting or drawing portraits of family, friends or pets from photos. I also run painting workshops and weekly art classes. For several years I have served on the committees of Wirral Open Studio Tour and Deeside Art Group."
