Mike Bernard produces highly textured semi-abstract paintings often executed in mixed media incorporating collage and acrylics. Bernard enjoys bringing an experimental approach to his watercolour and oil paintings. Regular subjects include coastal and street scenes in the English West Country and Italy. Speaking about his British Art Mike says: “What attracts me most is the pattern of buildings, boats and similar features in a scene. I build a painting by putting in blocks of colour to develop a pattern which is pleasing to my eye in colours which are harmonious, bringing in feelings of spontaneity, freshness and freedom.”
