Keep it simple, says art judge
“See the image, paint the feeling” is 2017 Warragul Rotary Art Show judge Ted Dansey’s philosophy in painting and in life. “Keep it simple,” he says. Artist Ted Dansey has painted and drawn for as long as he cares to remember. It started when he was around seven or eight-yearsold, and after that he just kept going.
On leaving school, Ted started work as ticket writer, then moved into freelance sign writing, graphic design, art direction before eventually to artist and teacher.
For 11 years Ted Dansey held the post of Victorian Artists Society manager/secretary, winning their 2007 artist of the year award. He was made a fellow of the society in 2011.
Ted now teaches watercolour painting at the Artists Society among other places with the view that he may just be able to impart a little something to those who just have a “want” to paint in watercolour.
