Original oil on canvas painting by Neale Worley
Neale Worley was born in Amersham, Buckinghamshire in 1962. In 1981 he started studying at the Camberwell School of Arts and Crafts, followed by the Royal Academy Schools where he was tutored by Ken Howard. Over the years Neale Worley has exhibited many times at The Royal Academy and the Mall Galleries. He has been the winner of many distinguished awards. Neale accompanied HRH The Prince of Wales as a Tour Artist in 2006 and 2013, as well as having works in HRH The Prince of Wales private collection. He now resides in London.
Many of Neale’s oils are painted from life in his studio with meticulous attention to line and detail. He captures skin tones magnificently and one can almost feel the texture of the fabrics within the painting. Neale’s realistic depiction also gives a glimpse of the mood of his model which adds to the attraction of his artwork. His many awards include The Minto Prize, the Oakham Gallery Prize and the Manya Igel Prize on four occasions, all at the New English Art Club annual. He has been commissioned to paint the past seven presidents of the CBI and HRH The Prince of Wales for the Army Air Corps.
