Photo Gallery: Oils: Techniques and Tutorials for the Complete Beginner by Norman Long, Contemporary Six Gallery
Last weekend saw the book launch for celebrated modern artist Norman Long’s Oils: Techniques and Tutorials for the Complete Beginner at independent art gallery Contemporary Six.
The launch accompanied the unveiling of 14 brand new oil paintings by Long. The book features each of the paintings on show, covering a range of painterly techniques and subjects.
Long was born in Preston in 1976 and, after graduating from Newcastle University, moved back to Preston where he still lives. Having developed into a successful oil painter and modern impressionist, Norman has exhibited in New York, Philadelphia, California, and several London venues.
His works have featured in the BP Portrait Award and Royal Society of Portrait Painters exhibitions, and in 2010 he was awarded the coveted Laszlo Award for an evocative portrait of his father. In 2008, Norman was awarded a double scholarship to undertake postgraduate study at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art.
