PAUL BANNING RI RSMA
Born in Trinidad in 1934 and educated at Clifton College in Bristol where he studied and excelled in furniture and interior design at the West of England College of Art. He obtained a National Service commission in the Army before joining the furniture trade until redundancy in 1986 allowed him to change direction and follow his passion for painting. Using his drafting talents, he taught himself the skills of water media painting and his watercolours show a masterly control of the medium. He is also an accomplished oil painter. Paul now exhibits regularly in the major exhibitions at the Mall Galleries, and has been hung in: the RA Summer Exhibition; The Singer and Friedlander Sunday Times Watercolour Exhibition 2005 and 2007, (now called The Sunday Times Watercolour Competition); the Lynn Painter-Stainers Exhibition 2007, 2014 and 2015; the RWS/Sunday Times Watercolour Competition 2009 and The Sunday Times Watercolour Competition 2010 and 2011. President of the Wokingham Art Society and both supports and is supported by local artists. Paul travels widely and enjoys the challenge of new subject matter and painting plein-air. He also regularly teaches students the skills of painting plein-air at Dedham in Suffolk, in March, May, and July. He has had numerous articles in The Artist, The Artists and Illustrators, Leisure Painter, and also in the French magazines, L’Art de L’Aquarelle and Pratique Des Art.
