is a self taught watercolour artist who devotes countless hours trying to create mood and atmosphere in his work. He explores the infinite possibilities available to the artist working in the medium of watercolour. Inspired to achieve light, transparency movement and fluidity in his work, Michael Treanor has developed his own distinctive style from experimentation and a personal desire to represent landscapes in a subtle and dramatic way. The qualities he most admires in watercolour painting are freshness and spontaneity and endeavours to achieve this in all his work.
Michael enjoys representing the street life of world cities, in particular his home town of Liverpool capturing the less recognised city scenes, such as back streets and café bars. The coastal stretch from Crosby to Formby constantly challenges his atmospheric watercolour skills.
Michael, originally from Stoke on Trent, now lives in Aughton, Lancashire where he continues to develop his watercolour techniques in his studio. Most of his works go out by private commissions and on occasions through exhibitions.
