Hamish Blakely comes from a theatrical background. He first learned his skills by drawing, copying other artists to understand and create what they did. His breakthrough came when he began to study at Wimbledon School of Art and Kingston University. He made himself use paint to do a portrait of his Dad, taking great care and really wanting to get it right. This was a turning point for him, as he realised he was quite good.
Hamish Blakely paints with immediacy and considers preparatory sketches unnecessary. He says that he has learned a lot in painting about what he did not want to do, as much as what he loves to do, he wants his paintings to 'grab' the potential buyer.
