Steven Broughton

I have been painting most of my life. I trained as a graphic designer producing packaging & display. Using my creative abilities, I specialised in illustration. Still working in the print industry, my time is very limited,

however on the weekends you can often find me either on the coast or in the bush near a river. These are my favourite spots to recharge and be inspired to paint. The river always changes its contours and

colour offering a new perspective. My style is contemporary, working with oils on canvas. My favourite subjects are landscape, seascape & clouds. I often use pallet knives to create texture in my painting. I

don’t like to spend too long on one painting, so I move the paint around very quickly. Years ago, I studied under Terence John Hadler at the Manyoung Gallery in Mt Eliza. He taught me to look deeply into the

bush to discover the undertones of colour and texture it offers, that most people wouldn’t normally pick up on. Like the Masters of years gone by, I often use violet as a background colour when working on a

bush scene. I feel this gives depth to the subject. Next time you look into the bush, if you half shut your eyes, you will see nuances of violets in the undergrowth
