Roy has been a keen artist since retiring.
Since moving to Mandurah he has developed an interest in plein air painting as well as studio work. The inspiration for this came about by attending a workshop by Leon Holmes and subsequently by becoming a member of the Mandurah Plein Air Artists group.
Roy paints mainly in watercolour but like other artists also uses acrylics and oils on occasion. As well as landscape he also enjoys portraiture .
