Mark Bagally

Hi there my name is Mark Bagally, I live on the Surfcoast of Victoria and pre-occupied in all things art, full time.

I have been painting on and off since the late 1990's, finally taking the plunge into full time in 2016.

I try and do something art related every day, whether it be painting or a sketch, practice brush strokes or colour mixing; read an art book or engage in self-education via the internet. I consider myself to be an impressionist painter and enjoy painting landscapes, seascapes and urban street scenes in both oil and watercolour.

My works have exhibited at various Victorian and interstate art shows and I have been the recipient of several awards including winner of the National Contemporary Art Award 2019 (for a self-portrait). I do a large number of commissioned pieces each year.

Although I enjoy working in my studio, my real passion is painting outdoors en plein air . I travel quite extensively throughout Victoria and New South Wales in pursuit of this passion. I draw much inspiration for seascapes from my doorstep with the Great Ocean Road a short drive away. I also like to paint landscapes in the rural areas of Victoria, particularly the Grampians and Alpine regions and along the Murray and Campaspe rivers.

I enjoy the challenge of creating a believable impression of a scene and I am inspired by renowned past and present Australian landscape impressionists, several of whom I've had the pleasure of being tutored by over the years at various advanced workshops. I believe the key to my progression has been lots of practice (brush miles) and a disciplined self-education regime. My studio is full of art books, videos and other art related material.

I paint mostly in oil and indeed all of my commissioned work has been oil based. However, I have taken a real liking to watercolour which I find quite challenging. I now work and study both mediums in studio and en plein air.

In addition to being an exhibiting member on the council of the Victorian Artist's Society, I am a member of various groups and societies including the Watercolour Society of Victoria; the Australian Guild of Realist Artists and the Contemporary Art Society.

 


Education

Other than completing a Certificate IV in Visual Arts in 2019, I am a self-taught artist.
