Artist captures your character

IAN LEGGE is a local painter, specialising in portraiture of pets, animals and people.

Having studied Fine Art many years ago, and using those skills to explore murals, paint effects and illustration over the years, he is now concentrating on original portraits in oil as well as pastel drawings. Working from photographs, the aim is not to generate a photo-realistic image but a genuine, heartfelt portrait that retains all the qualities of the medium being used.

The paintings tend to fall somewhere between an impressionistic and traditional approach and so brush marks, underpainting and sketching can often be seen.

This approach results in a completely original work and also captures the character and personality of the animal or human being depicted. Ian undertakes commissions and is very happy to chat about any ideas you may have, be it for yourself or as unique gifts for friends and family.

Examples and price guides can be found at his website. To find out more please visit http://ianlegge.weebly.com or contact Ian at ianlegge@ fastmail.co.uk or on 07787 702453.
