The open studio, as a part of the annual Manly Arts Festival, provides a rare chance to visit the studio of award-winning watercolour artist GuyTroughton.
Guy is one of Australia's most respected watercolour artists, known for his exquisite bird, landscape and wildlife paintings. He promotes the medium of watercolour through the Australian Watercolour Institute, and he is also an avid naturalist. Born in the UK, Guy moved to Australia in 1997 and lives near Manly with his family.
Among his many honours, Guy was awarded the Waterhouse Natural History Prize. Recently, his watercolours have been on show in Mexico.
