Guy Troughton

Guy Troughton is one of Australia’s most respected watercolour artists.  Best known for his
beautiful bird, wildlife and landscape paintings, Guy’s work captures the spirit and essence of
the natural world with a quiet intensity.  Imbued with mystery, his paintings have a calm,
sometimes surreal quality to them. 

A fervent naturalist, Guy has travelled to many countries and spent countless hours seeking
out his subjects in the wild.   He loves the challenge of painting  en plein-air (outdoors) where
everything is unpredictable,  as well as in his studio.  

Guy promotes the medium of watercolour through the prestigious Australian Watercolour
Institute (AWI) and also teaches watercolour classes and workshops – sharing his passion
and knowledge with others.   

Born in the UK, Guy moved to Australia in 1997 and currently lives near Manly in Sydney with
his wife Ellie and their two sons.

Guy has exhibited regularly in Australia since 1997 and his paintings have been selected for
countless major shows and art prizes including the Waterhouse Natural History Prize,  The
Blake Prize,  The Mosman Art Prize and the Salon des RefusÚs.  

Recently his watercolours have been on show in Mexico, Korea, Taiwan, and China.  

Prior to moving to Australia, Guy exhibited  in the UK and Europe and his paintings are held
in many notable collections
