Roy Grandy is a landscape painter based in Quinte West.
Roy has lived in Ontario most of his life and has been sketching and painting here since the mid-1960’s. Roy enjoys varied media including watercolour, acrylic and oil. Although much of his painting and drawing is based directly on observation of the landscape, Roy enjoys a more ‘interpretive’ approach especially in larger works.
Primarily self-taught, Roy has studied watercolour, drawing and life drawing at Sheridan College and has spent many days sketching and painting in southern Ontario and the Bruce Peninsula.
Currently based in Quinte West, Roy is exploring the rural areas of Hastings and the Northumberland Hills, as well as Prince Edward County. Much of his inspiration from the Georgian Bay and Killarney areas of Ontario. Roy continues to evolve from direct interpretation of nature to a more simplified and impactful expression while keeping the original emotional response intact, above all maintaining creative honesty throughout.
