The subjects Trevor paints are varied, you can find scenes in the street and it may be in Machester city or Venice or whatever nice place you can think about. Or you can see a scene in a beach, in a theater, in a “gondola” or a market.

But you always will find people painted, and maybe people, characters are the center of his painting, figures walkin in a park, a crowded street, the beach, sitting waiting or playing some sport.

What you will find is a wonderful loose style to paint figures.

We always will find the characteristic economy of details and brushstrokes and the use of a limited palette, not an easy task  because the artist mus have a good sense of abstraction. enjoying the beach

Ah Venice… what a wonderful place to visit, to walk by the narrow streets and alleys, to sit at one of the St. Mark Square (Piazza San Marcos) to drink a coffee and listen to the music and enjoy the musicians there. And why not, to have this scene painted by Trevor.
