Dennis Gilbert Paintings
I am a representational painter, specialising in figure compositions, portraits and landscapes. A favourite subject is the urban view. Favourite cities are London, Paris and Venice. A favourite theme is water. I work in oil, watercolour, gouache and pastel. I have a great studio in Chelsea, London where I work, live and entertain friends.
I trained at St Martin's School of art in London's Charing Cross Road. Until 1986, I was senior Lecturer at Chelsea School of Art. I also taught at Hammersmith, Wimbledon and Kingston Schools of Art

Artist's Statement:
In my pictures, I love to capture the effects of light and colour as a way of expressing the joys of nature and of life itself. These are used to best effect in the landscape and in the human form.
