ARTISTGrant Wood

“He held his breath for several long minutes as he fashioned brilliant beams of piercing light in an evening or morning sky—and then breathed out gustily as he drew back to assess his progress. “

Grant, was the first in his family to be recognized as an artist. Under the guidance of Alan Turton, his DHS art teacher, he learned to create subtle atmospheric effects with several sweeps of the brush and a few swipes and dabs of his thumb and cloth on saturated watercolour paper.

Occasionally, to relieve the intensity of the creative process, Grant will break into song in his strong pseudo-operatic tenor voice, and then settle down again to the serious, all-enveloping task at hand. Grant effortlessly captures the unique ambiance of South Africa’s seascapes, landscapes and dwellings.
