Antony Bridge Plein Air ArtistAntony Bridge is emerging as one of the country''s premier English plein air artists based in the gloureous Malvern Hills in the heart of England, his passions for plein air came from a childhood wanting to paint from life in the open air at an early age, having learnt to paint realism using the airbrush Antony went onto larger studio works, studying cloud formations which became popular with collectors across the UK and his other collectors in Africa, Monaco and the US. in 2008 Antony set the challenge to paint outside in the open air each day and managed to paint for over 600 days in all weathers. Inspired by Turner, Seago, hockney, and many of the other past plein air painters, his aim is to increase the size of his work over the next years whilst on location. Using his pochade box, a piece of art equipment he has brought back and started to sell online across the world on pochade.co.uk. Working in oil on millboard in a loose and painterly manner, with a main focus of landscape, Antony feels you learn more about the landscape and hopes to increase to a full size canvas on location in future years. ?Being at one with the essence of nature is to be at one with yourself: it needs a certain understanding of yourself.? ?The only thing that it is between the painter and the nature that they seek to encaspulate... Is the pochade box.? ?Energy, colour and light ?
