Neville Legall – A Part of the ‘Tropical Insights’ Exhibition
– Ode to Chalky Mount,
Watercolour on paper, 22×29.5” (Framed), 2014
Neville grew up in a village in Barbados and thus sought to paint the old houses and village scenes he so often saw, capturing the charm of everyday life. His vibrant use of colour injects life into these everyday, scenes. The rural landscape of the East Coast in particular has a special charm about it; “I feel a sense of freedom exploring the rugged hills which allow me to explore paint without concern for photographic accuracy, and to explore shapes, colour and texture,” says Neville.
Neville Legall lives and works in Barbados.
