Sadly Tony Hunter passed away in 2015. He was a long standing member of the Hornsea Art Society, and for a number of the early years of the Society served as Secretary. He regularly supported the HAS Annual Exhibition with his delightful watercolours of village life, and his humorous studies of people and animals. He and his work will be missed by HAS members.
The gallery pictures shown here and the following profile sent to the website by Tony were posted in 2015:
“I started painting a long time ago when we lived in Hornsea and of course joined the society at that time. I don’t have a particular style or subject although I love all the old towns and villages all over the country for landscape work and more recently pictures of groups of people doing whatever it is people do. I mostly work in watercolour or acrylics.
When I joined the society Harry Hudson Rodmell was still alive and while very much in the background due to his age and health he was a great inspiration to all who knew his work. And of course Colin Verity who was active at that time also inspired lots of the members then.
I was elected a member of the Fylingdales Group of Artists just before we moved from Hornsea in 1984.”
