Richard has worked as professional artist for over 13 years. He composes his paintings on location, making many sketches and taking photographs for reference. He then crafts the finished piece in his studio. Confident use of colour is a hallmark of Richard’s work, a fact that is all the more impressive given his colour blind-ness. He’s based in the Pennines in the UK but also works from his other studio in Tuscany, Italy. His work captures countryside vistas and urban landscapes with equal composure. The collection currently in the gallery takes inspiration from South Devon, a long favoured destination for Richard.
