Keep it sim­ple, says art judge

Warragul & Drouin Gazette - - ARTS ENTERTAINMENT -

“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.
