About The Artwork

I found an old drawing in my studio whilst having a clearcut due to lockdown. Although it had been abandoned, there was something about it so I have reworked it and am pleased with the result. Red chalk (conte sanguin) is very unforgiving - hard to rub out . The key with this image was to build it up carefully whilst keeping it looking spontaneous.

Overview As you can see I specialise in capturing the female form - subtle, classical nudes in oil, charcoal, graphite and red chalk. Born in Henley, I spent most of my adult life in London, Hong Kong and Dublin. I am now happily settled in Windsor. I abandoned a successful career in publishing at the age of 40 to follow my lifelong passion - drawing and painting (my mother was a very talented, yet untrained artist and an award-winning jeweller so art was always happening around me). I trained at a leading art college in London and was then taught by Michael Clark, who knew Francis Bacon very well (and incidentally the only person to draw him in the flesh) - his wonderful tonal paintings and drawings left indelible marks on me and inspire me to this day. I had been going to life-drawing classes for many years so continuing to use the figure as my subject was a natural progression. My work has been included in the books ‘Images of Women in Art’ and ‘Musings of Miss Yellow’. As well as being a stay-at-home Dad, I now paint from my Windsor studio and run my own life-drawing classes at the Windsor Art Centre. Testimonial “Patrick Palmer is a modern master of figurative art. His post-romantic nudes are not only exquisitely painted, but also dreamy, delicate and suggestive. They only hint at sensuality and evoke fantasy in the subtle and elegant manner that distinguishes art from pornography.” Claudia Moscovici, Co-founder of postromanticism.com and art critic (“Romanticism and Post-romanticism”, Lexington Books, 2007).
