Desley Watson-Raston


Desley started painting in watercolour through lessons, workshops, books, and online methods. She enjoys painting landscapes, flowers (in particular roses), animals, still life, commissions, and abstract works.

Her passion, at the moment, is painting original art on canvas in oils, pen & ink and collage.

“In an eye-catching way, I enjoy doing flow painting with acrylic paints. Also, I love doing animals in coloured ink”.

Desley Watson-Raston Original Art

As an artist, Desley has been passionate about painting since 2007. Starting in watercolour, she then moved to using oils. But, her transition over to oil painting was short-lived. Desley had fall in 2019. As a result, she had to have operations and require special glasses.

But to Desley’s joy, she was able to start painting again in 2021.

“I am enjoying oil painting through a variety of styles. These include portrait, landscape, abstract, animals, still life, and birds. I have a tendency to enjoy a form of funky, unusual contemporary art approaches to painting on canvas. Also, I love using perspective in a form of depth to enlighten the focal point of the painting.”
