Alan Tazzyman

Allan Tazzyman is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts (FRSA). He is an Englishman, a native of Yorkshire in the north of England, who moved to live on Crete in 2004. He has already acquired a considerable reputation for painting stunning watercolour landscapes in his own individual style which is distinctive and instantly recognisable.

 

Allan paints according to the traditional English school of watercolour painting in that he uses only the paper, water, his brushes and the paint. In other words, he does not use any artificial aids, such as masking fluid, to achieve his atmospheric results. He paints only in the open air, as he maintains that if you want to paint a landscape, you have to be in it - to see it, smell it, hear it, touch it and even taste it - to be able to capture the view with any sort of feeling, that is, you have to be able to use all five senses.
