Leon Holmes was filmed for Colour In Your Life in 2019. In this short segment, Graeme Stevenson interviews Leon about what he has been up to since filming his show, and his current exhibition.
Leon Holmes is an award-winning Australian artist, lecturer and ambassador of Plein Air painting (on location) in the medium of oil.
Born and raised in Perth, Leon’s career started with a wide range of artistic fields including Printmaking, Graphic Design, Art Direction, Illustration and Photography.
Since 2003, Leon is a professional artist painting outdoors in the style of impressionistic realism, just like the old masters did and he is honoured to have one of his paintings hanging amongst Dutch masterpieces in the Katwjik Museum in Holland.
Leon works quickly when capturing natural light and colour and used his outdoor sketches as reference when creating larger works in his home studio in Mandurah.
