The role of artist-in-residence

As he prepares for a year as artist-in-residence at Munnings Art Museum, Roger Dellar provides an insight into what he will be painting, the benefits to the artist of taking a residency and shares his tips on how to apply for one and carry it out successfully
The Drawing Room, oil, 12x12in (30.5x30.5cm). Sometimes you have to paint where you can stand, including sorting out a composition trying to lead the eye around the painting

Iam writing this article ahead of my year as artist-in-residence at the Munnings Art Museum in Essex*, the former home of Alfred Munnings. Throughout 2019 I will be painting scenes that represent Munnings’ house in today’s society, with visitors enjoying the exhibitions of Alfred Munnings’ paintings. During the year there will be a very special showing of Munnings’ work during his time as a Canadian war artist.

The work I do will show the house and staff– Munnings’ studio, which now also has a tearoom, the events that are planned and the maintenance of the house and gardens.

I will endeavour to cover some of the scenes he painted and the locality, for example the River Stour and Dedham Vale stables. If I find a scene I know he painted I will try to record the differences between what it was like then and how it is today.

About The Artist

Welcome to the April issue, packed with practical articles and demonstrations designed to inspire artists of all levels to develop their skills in all media. Our top artist-contributors this month include Hazel Soan, who suggests techniques for creating light and shade in your watercolours, Ian Sidaway who encourages you to paint a self-portrait, and Paul Talbot-Greaves who shows how to paint colourful boats in three easy stages in acrylics. Practise your skills as you learn how to loosen up and be more expressive in your drawings, use coloured pencils to create a found still life, simplify a busy harbour scene to create a composition full of light and colour, and achieve clean colours in your acrylic landscapes. This issue we also welcome back Geoff Hunt, who begins a new series documenting the results of his painting trips. Plus Roger Dellar offers tips on how to secure an artist-in-residence position and Mark David Hatwood explains how to reach potential buyers by working with partners. Enjoy trying new ideas in your own work with help from this month's artists and tutors.
