Local based Glaswegian Paul has worked in interior design and as an architectural illustrator. He is currently a stay at home dad, painting as often as he can in between looking after his youngest daughter, three-year-old Frances.
Paul loves oils though admits he can find them messy and slow, and is very happy working with acrylic. The weekly time challenges could work to Paul’s advantage as he embraces time constraints, saying “you can lose spontaneity if spend too long on something!”
Married young, and with a young family, Paul couldn’t afford to go to Glasgow School of Art full time when he was younger, but attended classes part time to study life drawing. Paul mostly dreams of having his own studio space to paint – and having more time to paint.
Paul Bell lives locally in Buckinghamshire and we wish him great success in this competition.
