Phillip R. Pomroy

Phil’s love of landscape painting began in his twenties, when he was introduced to the art of Arthur Streeton, Frederick McCubbin and Tom Roberts. All were artists who painted en plein air in or around Heidelberg, in Melbourne’s rural outskirts, and became part of a movement that came to be known as the Heidelberg School.

Drawing on naturalist ideas, they sought to capture Australian life, the bush, and the harsh sunlight that typifies our country.

Phil’s paintings are all about colour. They are also full of intricate detail and often amusing vignettes. The more you look at them, the more you see.

With no formal training, Phil began his art by following the styles he saw in the Heidelberg painters. Along the way, he developed a dynamic, distinctive and vibrant style of his own.
