About British Painter Tony Hinchliffe

I have always loved the sense of escapism that comes with creating artwork. British painter Tony Hinchliffe is passionate about exploring his creativity. ‘When someone is emotionally moved, this is a big motivation for me as I love to please people through my paintings’.

Preferred medium

Sometimes Tony creates an acrylic underpainting first as he likes the way the oil paint behaves when applied over acrylic. Tony often dilutes the oil paint down with turpentine. His Figurative painting is all about depicting the mood and intimacy within a moment. Using a loose approach  while trying to be spontaneous, considering placement of strong contrasting values to create depth.

Figurative art

Drawing figures from life, this has been fundamental to the development of a figurative painting style – mainly through observing directly into the small details in body language that can be suggestive. The most favourite theme is that everyone deserves to feel loved and he displays this often in his pieces.


‘My main inspiration comes from being outside, studying people, oceans, landscapes and skies in all weather conditions. When I can look at my finished painting and recall accurately how I felt during the process of painting, then I know I’ve succeeded.’

‘One of my latest projects is about depicting skies and landscapes at altitude, a lot of fun is had exploring the skies in my paramotor, flying above, around and sometimes inside the clouds. The atmosphere and light at several thousand feet can be extremely fascinating and a real challenge to depict with a paint brush’.
