Bardsley-Smith, Rick

Landscapes – Watercolour Painting:

Rick Bardsley-Smith – Rick has lived all his life in Sydney’s eastern suburbs.  While drawing and painting were high on his agenda at school, not so those around him.  This led to tertiary training in town planning and architecture at University and a career in that field.

Along the way there were often drawings, illustrations and renderings to prepare.  These high points were supplemented with stolen moments and late nights on the kitchen table grappling with the challenge of painting in watercolours.  He now spends as much time as possible painting.

Rick was elected Vice President of Randwick Art Society in 2019, and then was re-elected for 2020. Rick is also one of two CASS representatives (Combined Art Societies of Sydney) for Randwick Art Society for 2020.
